The 1983 NCAA Men's Volleyball Tournament was the 14th annual tournament to determine the national champion of NCAA men's collegiate volleyball. The tournament was played at St. John Arena in Columbus, Ohio during May 1983.


UCLA defeated Pepperdine in the final match, 3–0 (15–10, 16–14, 15–7), to win their tenth national title. The Bruins (27–4) were coached by Al Scates.

UCLA's Ricci Luyties was named the tournament's Most Outstanding Player. Luyties, along with six other players, comprised the All-tournament team.


Until the creation of the NCAA Men's Division III Volleyball Championship in 2012, there was only a single national championship for men's volleyball. As such, all NCAA men's volleyball programs (whether from Division I, Division II, or Division III) were eligible. A total of 4 teams were invited to contest this championship.
