We’re Open!

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 36 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.

We are open normally* from 12:00pm – 8:00pm, Monday through Friday.
