Urbana’s athletic teams were known as the Blue Knights, the colors were blue and white. The school sponsored 21 intercollegiate teams. The university was a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) at the Division II level. Urbana was an independent member of Division II, after completing the transition from the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) and member of the American Mideast Conference (AMC) to NCAA in 2010. In 2010, the Great Lakes Valley Conference (GLVC) had accepted Urbana as associate member of the GLVC in football only starting with the 2012 season.
In 2011, the university and five other schools, many also transitioning to the NCAA from NAIA, had announced their intentions to form the Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC) in 2013. The G-MAC ultimately launched a year earlier than planned, in 2012, with Urbana as a member. The school spent only one season in the G-MAC; on August 20, 2012, Urbana was unveiled as a charter member of the Mountain East Conference (MEC), a new Division II conference set to launch for the 2013–14 school year. The MEC is mostly made up of schools leaving the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, but also includes another Ohio school in Notre Dame College.
