Competitive, organized video gaming (esports) is coming to Carroll University! Esports will debut in the fall of 2020, with a dedicated gaming space in the Campus Center, where Carroll students can compete, practice and watch the latest video games being played.
Organized, competitive video gaming is booming on college campuses and Carroll is excited to join the esports world. Like traditional sports, players join together to form teams for each game and compete against other teams from other universities. Carroll University will offer both recreational and varsity team esports opportunities in our new dedicated gaming facility, the Carroll Esports Center, where students can connect with other gamers here on campus and across the world.
The Carroll Esports Center will be the hub for all things esports on campus, filled with state-of-the-art gaming PCs and gaming consoles – all available for recreational use by Carroll students. The center will offer a library of both PC and console games for students to check out and play.
Ready to take your gaming to the next level? Carroll University’s esports program will offer dedicated coaching, analysis and support. The team will belong to the National Association of Collegiate Esports (NACE) and will compete regularly in Tespa, Collegiate Starleague and other competitive leagues. Esports is a part of University Recreation and Wellness at Carroll.
Join the gaming community at Carroll
Carroll Esports will be a place for students of all different majors and backgrounds who are interested in playing a certain game competitively or those who are interested in building a community around video game competition.
Intramural leagues and tournaments will allow Carroll students to test and hone their skills in an exciting and supportive environment and potentially make their way to our competitive varsity team.
