Esports and Gaming Learning Community

If you’re interested in esports, competitive gaming play, understanding when to work and when to play, and Game Design or Development, the esports and Gaming Learning Community is for you! This learning community is designed to help you form social connections with other students that share similar gaming interest.  You will be paired with an upper-class peer mentor that will assist in improving your competitive game play and provide structure as you transition to college life.

Where you'll live

We encourage you to live on campus with others in your Learning Community because that's where much of your networking takes place, but it is not required.

You can choose to live:

  • In designated Learning Community housing
    • Renovated double rooms located in Crawford A, B, D, McElroy E, F, H or Preska I Halls.  Renovated rooms have in-room air-conditioning and share a community bathroom with the floor.
    • You can choose to have another Learning Community student assigned as your roommate, or you may choose your own.
  • Other on-campus housing
    • It will be your responsibility to choose a housing location after the time-slot provided to you by Residential Life.
  • Off-campus
