Lawrence University has opened a new ESports gaming lounge in the lower level of Memorial Hall.

Available to students who want to gather for gaming, the lounge is open daily from 4 to 10 p.m. (Hours are subject to change).

Nintendo Switch and PC games are available to play, including League of Legends (Riot Games), Valorant (Riot Games), Rocket League (Epic Games), and Counter Strike (Steam). Other titles will be added.

Students gather to play video games in the Esports gaming lounge.
Students can drop in during open hours to play games in the lounge.

Esports provides an opportunity to enjoy video gaming in a highly organized, competitive environment. The games can range from MOBAs (Multiplayer Online Battle Arenas), to single-player games, to survival battle royales, to virtual sports.

The lounge is overseen by Student Life. Best practices and wellness considerations are posted in the lounge.
