IMLeagues Registration Instructions

All Intramural (IM) participants at the University of Chicago are required to have an IMLeagues account and be listed on the official team roster for each sport they play.

Although UChicago does not require a signed waiver to participate in IMs, all participants must agree to the waiver included on IMLeagues when initially creating their account.

IMLeagues is available as both a web-based platform as well as an app on Apple and Android devices.  We recommend downloading the app for easy access to your teams, schedules, and other information.

To Create an IMLeagues Account:

  • Go to and click “Create Account” at the top of the page.
  • “University of Chicago” should automatically populate in the first drop down box.  If it does not, scroll through the options and select it.
