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 and informal learning takes place. However, we understand that everyone is navigating their way through social distancing in different ways. Because of COVID-19, we are not requiring students to live on campus during the 2021-2022 academic year.

If you choose the Learning Community housing, you will be assigned to renovated double room (Crawford A, B, D, McElroy E, F, H or Preska I).  Renovated rooms have in-room air-conditioning and share a community bathroom with the floor. Learning Community students are housed with other students in the same learning community.

If you do not choose the learning community housing and plan to live on campus, it will be your responsibility to choose a housing location after the time-slot provided to you by Residential Life.
