The 2014 NCAA Women's Division I Basketball Tournament will be played in March and April 2014, with the Final Four played April 6–8. The subregional and regional locations are below. The Final Four will be played at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. The Ohio Valley Conference will serve as the host institution. This is the first time that Nashville has hosted a Women's Final Four Basketball tournament.
The format is similar to the Men's Tournament, except that there are 64 teams; this in turn means there is no "First Four" round. Thirty-one automatic bids for conference tournament champions plus one automatic bid for the Ivy League regular-season champion, and 32 at-large bids are available.
The subregionals will be played from March 22 through March 25, 2014. Sites chosen to host first- and second-round games in 2014 include:
