Due to Covid-19, this fall the Esports Arena in Neptune North will be accessible only for Esports Collegiate team practice and tournament play. Only students on the varsity Rocket League, League of Legends and Overwatch teams will have OneCard access to the arena throughout the week.
On Sundays from 1 to 8 p.m., only students in the Esports Special Interest Community (SIC) may drop in for casual play. No guests are allowed and all safety and health protocol must be followed. More information will be provided to the Esports SIC students.
Esports Club members can attend meetings online via our Discord Server. Look for more information about the Esports Club in September.
