eSports Arena FAQs

  • What is the Esports Arena?
    The FAU Student Union Esports Arena is where you can play games to your heart's content. We offer a friendly space for both casual and competitive PC gaming, console gaming, board gaming, billiards, and ping pong.

  • What does the Esports Arena have to offer?
    We sell access to high-end equipment that is normally out of the price range of an average college student. We offer the ultimate college student gaming experience.

  • What do you have to pay for here?
    The gaming PCs and newer gaming consoles are the only things that you are required to pay for use. The console area is free to use if you bring your own consoles, as is the rental of our ping-pong equipment, billiards equipment, tabletop gaming area, and older gaming consoles.

  • What console games do you offer?
    We have an Xbox One and multiple Nintendo Switch consoles that are pay-to-play, as well as a PS3, Xbox 360, and Nintendo Wii console with a small library of games that are free-to-play. You are also free to bring your own consoles, console games, and controllers. We offer spacious areas with 65" TV monitors and seating for you to hang out and play. Bring-your-own console stations are free to use.

  • What PC games do you offer?
    We have a ggLeap library of over 40 games. See our PC Game List here!

  • Why can't I play this PC game?
    For paid games, you must already own a copy of the title to play it on our computers. Over half of our game library is free-to-play. To save time, please have your platform’s login information ready prior to playing.

  • Do I have to use my gaming hours all at once?
    No. Although purchased time begins counting down once you log in to ggLeap, you are free to log in and out at any time. Your remaining time will be saved and purchased hours do not expire.

  • Can I request a game to be added?
    Yes. Submit any suggestions for new games to one of our friendly Esports Arena attendants. We add new games to the computers on a regular basis. Note that all games must be approved and installed by upper management.

  • Is the Arena open to the public?
    Currently, the Arena is exclusively open to FAU Students, Faculty, and Staff.

  • Can I host a tournament here?
    Yes. The Arena is open to hosting tournaments and other organized gaming events both big and small. Please submit a request through Owl Central to book your event, or contact Student Union Event Planning for further questions at / 561-297-3730. Depending on the size and extent of your production (audio/visual equipment, live-streaming, staff, etc.), fees may apply.

  • Is there an Esports Team/Club?
