UMWRFC is a Division I Collegiate Women's Rugby Club team. We belong to the Big Ten Universities Eastern Conference and play against other notable Big Ten Schools such as Michigan State, Ohio State, and Penn State.

In 2009, 2010 UM was the Eastern Midwest division champions and in 2010 won the Midwest Championship and went on to the Sweet 16 round of the National Championship tournament in 2011.
