The Virginia Cavaliers finished the 2021 NCAA Division I Swimming & Diving Championships in Greensboro as national champions, celebrating their first title in school history, a year overdue from being seeded to win the meet last year before the meet was cancelled. It was a historic year all around, as NC State finished in its highest place ever in second, as this is the first time the Atlantic Coast Conference has had a team in the top two.

Texas was third for its first top four finish since 2001. Cal was fourth overall for its 12th straight top four finish. Alabama was fifth for its highest finish since 1983.
