The Esports gaming facility is a very exciting addition to the newly renovated lower-level of the JFK Student Center, which also features a brand new food court, conference rooms, bookstore, and more! The space was designed through contributions from both American Esports as well as the architectural designs of Kimmel-Bogrette, who created the renovation designs for the JFK Student Center.
Inside of the arena, you will find:
18 professional-grade gaming PCs
2 Nintendo Switches
Custom leather gaming chairs
Professional grade equipment such as:
The impressive internet connection features a dedicated 1-Gbps shielded Cat-6 Ethernet connection, ensuring optimum speed and performance.
The arena is climate-controlled and features Bluetooth-controlled RGB lighting, card-swipe access for Student IDs, and team logos and program branding accent the space as well to provide a fun and exciting experience for serious and causal gamers alike.
The SFU Esports Gaming Arena also includes a central command-hub (podium) where our program administrators can easily control the arena's environment from a streaming and social media standpoint.
We're able to easily control live streams for viewers, fans, and subscribers to follow the team's competitions as well as allow the space to work as an lounge and observatory for our players to tune-in and check-out the action coming from other high school, college, and professional teams and leagues.
