The UCI Esports Arena is the first of its kind on a college campus. The arena is located at the heart of campus on the Student Center Terrace. Students, staff, faculty, alumni and guests are welcome, where we provide a variety of the most popular games at UCI.

With the support of our sponsors, we’ve decked out the 3,500 sq. ft. space with 72 top-of-the-line iBUYPOWER computers, Logitech gaming gear, and gaming chairs. In addition to the PCs, we have a Console & Community Corner where our campus clubs and organizations can host events and meetings and where we demo virtual reality. The arena also houses our Broadcast Station.

Due to COVID-19, the UCI Esports Arena is currently closed indefinitely. We will provide an update once we have more details to share.

In the meantime, we are offering an online-only membership program to replace our original model within the UCI Esports Arena. When we’re ready to reopen, we will announce additional facility perks as part of our membership!


With our mostly-online Fall Quarter underway, we miss hosting our gaming community in the UCI Esports Arena. While our doors are closed this fall, we know our gamers are as active as ever, and eager to connect. Therefore, we are excited to announce our new online memberships to allow us to meet up virtually and collectively celebrate our love of games.
