NIU Esports Club

Our NIU Esports Club is a vibrant and welcoming community of casual and competitive video gamers. Started in 2012, we're a student-run organization recognized by NIU Recreation and Wellness as an NIU Sport Club.

Join NIU Esports

Per our club constitution, “the NIU Esports Club believes that video games and esports should be available to all players and endeavors to open the esports field up to collegiate students.” We welcome and teach new members regardless of experience or ability.

Membership is open to all fee-paying students, faculty and staff. There's no cost for casual play and the fee is minimal to compete. Join the club today on Huskie Link or contact Jacob at jtroyke@niu.edu to learn more.
