The 1962 NCAA University Division Baseball Tournament was played at the end of the 1962 NCAA University Division baseball season to determine the national champion of college baseball.

These events would later become known as regionals. Each district had its own format for selecting teams, resulting in 27 teams participating in the tournament at the conclusion of their regular season, and in some cases, after a conference tournament. The College World Series was held in Omaha, NE from June 11 to June 16. The sixteenth tournament’s champion was Michigan, coached by Don Lund. The Most Outstanding Player was Bob Garibaldi of runner-up Santa Clara.
