CMU Athletics

Victory celebrations, intense practices, countless bus trips, team-building meals — Carnegie Mellon University Athletics provides student-athletes with much more than four seasons of memories.

We inspire treasured bonds that expand beyond their final season and impart lifelong lessons of teamwork, responsibility, commitment and leadership.

CMU student-athletes hone their bodies and minds to excel both in and out of competition as they balance coursework with travel schedules and preparations for tough matchups.

Tartans collaborate. Tartans compete. Tartans challenge. You can help make possible a rich CMU experience for Tartans.
