IPFW athletes compete as a NCAA Division I school in the The Summit League and the Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association.

Former Indiana University basketball standout, Dane Fife, was named the IPFW men's basketball coach in the summer of 2005. At the time, Fife was the youngest NCAA Division I head coach, at the age of 26.

Before joining NCAA Div I, IPFW competed in the GLVC Conference NCAA Div. II and reached a ranking of #4 in the country in men's basketball (1993) led by brothers Sean and Shane Gibson.

IPFW has no football team. Although IPFW has no arena or stadium of its own, the venue for IPFW's large-attendance indoor athletic events is the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum which is adjacent to the portion of the IPFW campus on the west side of the Saint Joseph River. For example, IPFW hosted the 2000 NCAA Men's Division-I volleyball championship matches at the Coliseum. Smaller athletic events are held at the Hilliard Gates Sports Center on the IPFW campus.
