In January 2014, Tafadzwa Pasipanodya (’14) and I set up the SLU Gaming Lab to promote research in gaming and esports. The lab consists of 12 machines (Intel i7 920 @ 2.66 GHz, 12 GB of RAM, Radeon RX 460 OC with 4 GB, 525 GB SSD) connected over 1 Gbps Ethernet running League of Legends,Overwatch, Hearthstone, and Fortnite on Windows 10. It will also serve as a venue for students to practice and compete as a team in leagues such as NACE, ECAC Esports, and TESPA.

The SLU Gaming Lab is located in Bewkes Science Hall 143. The room houses many of our department servers and networking equipment, and serves as a space where senior computer science majors do their Senior Year Experience (SYE) projects.
