How It Works


You will use a platform called ggLeap to access games.

To create an account, visit the Student Union Resource Center desk in Kryzsko Commons. Staff will set you up and explain how the space works.

Each person can have up to 4 hours of PC/Switch access per day, with a max of 50 hours in a month.

You must check in at the Resource Center desk before playing to unlock the machines.

Peripherals (keyboard, mouse, controller, mouse pad) are available for free. You may bring your own peripherals.

If you have your own launcher account, such as Steam, you can use it.

New users must create their own accounts for free games. Limited licenses will be available for paid games.

Who Can Use the Esports Lounge


The Warrior Esports Lounge is open daily from 10am-10pm to WSU students, faculty and staff. It is located in Kryzsko Commons 107.

You will use your WSU ID to access the gaming equipment.

You may bring guests to watch gaming, but they will not be able to use the equipment.

Due to COVID-19 capacity restrictions, we can only allow 12 people in the lounge at a time. If space is needed for a WSU user, then guests may be asked to leave.

 

Reservations

The lounge is available on a first come first use basis based on availability of PCs and Nintendo Switch consoles. Individual reservations are not available at this time.
