    Most british universities have a judo team, but I'm guessing you wanted stuff in America/Canada

    I never heard of a varsity BJJ team. However, the University of Pittsburgh has a BJJ club, and Carnegie Mellon University also has a Grappling Club. (Neither are associtated with the infamous PSFC). Pitt's BJJ club has better facilities, is loosely assocated with Gustavo Machado and mostly composed of Judokas. However, CMU's club has a better grappling atmosphere and a really knowledgeable member/instructor. Pitt's club only grapples in a gi and has practices twice a week. CMU's club grapples no-gi twice week and with a gi once a week. The times to not conflice with each other, and I try to attend both as often as I can.

    My alma mater Georgia State University has both a judo club and a bjj club. No wrestling, but you can't have everything...
