The 1966–67 NCAA University Division men's ice hockey season began in November 1966 and concluded with the 1967 NCAA University Division Men's Ice Hockey Tournament's championship game on March 18, 1967 at the Onondaga County War Memorial in Syracuse, New York. This was the 20th season in which an NCAA ice hockey championship was held and is the 73rd year overall where an NCAA school fielded a team.

New Hampshire returned to a partial University Division schedule but still qualified for the lower-tier ECAC playoffs for this and the following season. They would become a full-time top division program for the 1968–69 season.

Cornell's win was the first by an eastern team since 1954 ending the 12-year dominance of the WCHA.

On June 7 1967, Al Karlander became the first NCAA player to be selected in an NHL Draft.
