Our NIU Esports Arena is Open

We've opened our dedicated esports arena in the Neptune North residence hall on our DeKalb campus, where any registered NIU student can play video games during arena hours and where our club members meet, practice and compete.

Esports is growing at NIU

We have a friendly and vibrant esports community at NIU. Our NIU Esports Club currently has over 75 active members who play casual and competitive esports. Any registered NIU student is welcome to join the Sport Club.

In 2019, we're expanding our esports program to our regional centers in Hoffman Estates and Naperville to offer more ways to meet other players, practice your skills, compete in tournaments and attend viewing parties.

Get Involved with NIU Esports

We hope you’ll get involved in esports at NIU – there are so many opportunities for students, alumni and community members to have fun, play video games and help build our exciting esports program. Check out our club on Facebook and Twitch.tv.
