Niagara University Esports serves as an opportunity for students to engage on a national level and in competition with other universities from around the country. Niagara Esports assists students by allowing them to network with people and become friends with other NU students who have similar interests as them. Niagara University serves as a resource for students to venture into the rapidly growing field of Esports. This will allow students to learn valuable life, technical, team, and communication skills.
Currently the Niagara Esports program consists of students who play on campus and students who compete in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) and Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC) Esports leagues.
As members of the MAAC and ECAC our Esports program has participated in titles like:
- League of Legends
- Overwatch 2
- Rocket League
- Super Smash Bros Ultimate
- And More!
Students play and watch Esports in our dedicated lab, The Nest, equipped with 10 Custom Gaming Computers built with:
- AMD Ryzen 2600X CPUs
- GeForce RTX 2060 graphic cards
