The New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) is an NCAA Division III college athletic conference based in the Northeastern United States.


In June 2007, nine colleges from New England announced the creation of a new athletic conference under the same NECC name.

The league, which began operations July 1, 2008, as a Division III conference includes Bay Path College (Longmeadow, Mass.), Becker College (Leicester, Mass.), Daniel Webster College (Nashua, N.H.), Elms College (Chicopee, Mass.), Lesley University (Cambridge, Mass.), Mitchell College (New London, Conn.), Newbury College (Brookline, Mass.), Southern Vermont College (Bennington, Vt.), and Wheelock College (Boston, Mass.). The most recent expansion is the addition of Regis College (Weston, Mass.), effective in the 2011-12 academic year.
