The ECAC Northeast is an intercollegiate athletic conference affiliated with the NCAA's Division III as a hockey-only conference. It is one of the three men's hockey conferences that operate under the umbrella of the ECAC; the others are the ECAC East, and the ECAC West. Member institutions are located in the New England region of the United States, in the states of Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
Unlike the ECAC East and ECAC West, there is no women's division of the ECAC Northeast. Most ECAC Northeast schools do not sponsor women's ice hockey; the two that do (Nichols & Salve Regina) play in the ECAC East.
