The Mass-Dartmouth Corsairs are a Men's Division III team in Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference.

The team is based out of the Hetland Arena in New Bedford, Massachusetts. From information on the team's website this appears to be the team's only home during its existence. The school itself is located in Dartmouth, Massachusetts, which is located between Fall River and New Bedford along the area known as the South Coast in southeastern Massachusetts where the original two campuses that were merged to create the Dartmouth-based school were located prior to the 1960's. The school was known as Southeastern Massachusetts University until 1991 when the school was renamed and merged into the University of Massachusetts system.
