Play College Esports at SNHU

The arena is now open

If you’re looking to advance your gaming skills, we’ve opened our very own state-of-the-art esports arena where you can compete in college esports or just play for fun. Complete with broadcasting and streaming capabilities, and 18 high-end gaming PCs, the arena is a world where you can hold your own in Valorant, destroy the nexus on Summoner’s Rift and dominate in Rocket League.

We’re also proud to be one of the first schools in New England to offer competitive college esports as an associate member of the East Coast Conference (ECC). This gives our esports team the ability to compete in local, regional and national competitions.

The SNHU esports program currently fields teams for:

  • League of Legends
  • Overwatch
  • Rocket League
  • Super Smash Bros Ultimate
  • Valorant

Think you have what it takes to compete at a national level? Take our recruitment survey to get started.
