E-Sports Gaming Lab
Saint Louis University (SLU) continued their professional relationship with Hastings+Chivetta by engaging H+C to convert space in the lower level of the Busch Student Center into the new E-Sports Gaming Lab. The SLU E-Sports program began with the club team’s founding in 2017, and students will be able to continue competing at that level.
The new E-Sports facility supports the expansion of SLU’s E-Sports program. The Spring 2020 facility opening and program launch created opportunities for students to get involved in open recreational play, intramural teams, club teams, and a varsity team. Student Development also plans to offer E-Sports scholarships.
The E-Sports Gaming Lab features 12 stations for computer gaming, 3 large TV monitors for spectators, and SLU Billiken branding throughout. The space will be open for general student use when the varsity team isn’t using the Gaming Lab as their practice facility.
