Play College Esports at SNHU

At Southern New Hampshire University, you don't just play video games - you compete. Whether you can hold your own in Valorant, destroy the nexus on Summoner’s Rift or dominate in the Rocket League arena, joining our esports team is an opportunity to hone your gaming skills and compete against varsity level opponents.

We are 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
