Live in GG House

GG House - NIU's Esports Special Interest Community

Picture yourself playing competitive and casual video games with your housemates and living right next door to our NIU Esports arena! When you live in GG House, our Esports Special Interest Community, you can make new friends and improve your game. Learn, play and explore career opportunities together.

PC and console gamers of all backgrounds and abilities are welcome, but you must interview and demonstrate your sincere interest in participating in the NIU Esports community.

GG House is located in one wing of the newly renovated Neptune East. There are 25 large, single rooms available (picture a double room with only one set of furniture).


  • Play on PC or consoles in the Esports Arena, it's just a few dozen steps away.
  • Attend watch parties and cheer on your favorite pro teams together.
  • Take field trips to esports centers in Chicago and the suburbs.
  • Play in casual tournaments just for our GG House members.
  • Volunteer in community esports special events.
  • Meet professionals in the esports industry and learn about their career path.
  • Learn leadership, communication and teamwork skills.
  • Have fun, make friends, and build your community from the first day of school.

Reserving Your Spot

GG House is reserved for students who enjoy playing video games either casually or competitively. You don't have to be good at the games you play, you just have to be enthusiastic about playing them.

You'll need to talk with our Esports General Manager, Conner Vagle, before you can sign up, and spaces are limited to the first 25 students who meet the GG House criteria.
