Get your game face on at the only university eSports facility in North Queensland!
The set up
This all new gaming facility is equipped for you to show up and show out. With 10 Alienware pro gaming computers in common area and another 5 in the competition area*, all with 25” 240hz monitors, and state-of-the-art lighting, you can immerse yourself in the game of your choice. The current downloads include Valorant, League of Legends, Dota 2, and Fortnite – with plans for more!
Your gaming experience will be top of the line. The Alienware desktop computers have RTX graphics cards, 1GB/s downloads, and sub 40ms ping times.
Console gamers, we haven't forgotten you! We have BYO console TVs for console gamers, a Pro area for your squad to team up, and the option of BYO favourite peripherals to make your gaming experience even better. Livestream your session to share your strategies and victories or display your session on the big screen.
Don't forget to grab your headset before you head over!
*COVID restrictions apply. The current space allows for 11 people.
JCU students and staff members can head over to Building 4, Room 005C at JCU Townsville, Bebegu Yumba campus, Douglas any time day or night*. Just swipe your JCU staff or student card to access the gaming room of your dreams. The best part? No bookings necessary. Just rock up, log in, and play away!
This space is purely for JCU gamers. No classes, no boring software, no general public access. This is the place to come relax, hang out, and smash your goals in a state-of-the-art facility.
*Except between 6-7am and 1-2pm for COVID cleaning.
The Wi-Fi isn't the only important connection in this space. This room brings together people of similar interests; this is an opportunity for you to make groups and teams that can enhance the time you spend inside and outside of the eSports space.
Existing groups that you can get involved with include the SoMAG club as well as the JCUSA Sport group. These are the people to keep an eye on if you're interested in gamer-facilitated events!
Keep up to date with eSport at JCU by watching this space, and joining or following JCU Sport.
Got a game that you'd love to see in the eSports room? Let us know!
You can request a specific game through the ITHelpdesk via ServiceNow or email IThelpdesk@jcu.edu.au. The IT Services CDM team will assess the game on several criteria such as any license fees, T&Cs, and complexity of set up.
We want to give you a space that you enjoy, so we will do our best to provide the games you want in a way that we can support.
Note: If you have your own Steam account, you can download and install games on the eSport room computers. However, please understand that the computers are reimaged on a regular basis, so anything installed will be deleted.
Yes, you can!
We hope to facilitate competitions in the future as well as establish a JCU eSport team, so this is the time to hone your skills in our competition room.
As restrictions ease and we see more gamers in the facility, we will coordinate a booking system for training sessions and participating in eSport events. However, this isn't likely to happen before 2021. Until then, the competition room is first-come, first-served.
The eSports gaming room allows for 25 people. However, COVID restrictions mean that the room is fit for 11 people.
Additionally, the eSport competition room that normally sits 5 is currently only fit for 3.
You can bring any of your own compatible equipment, however, we require that you bring your own headset. This is required even without COVID precautions.
