The UW-Whitewater Esports Studio initiative is a culmination of esports based education and competition. The studio will be host to over two dozen high-grade competition PC gaming setups, with a focus on accessibility, ease-of-use, student involvement, and competition. The lab will be open to students and the local community at a low hourly rate or for a semesterly one-time pass. This lab will be a flagship facility for esports, accessibility, inclusion, and for developing a revenue-generating facility at UW-Whitewater.

The UW-Whitewater Esports Studio is a joint mission between the Center for Inclusive Education & Employment, the UW-Whitewater Division of Student Affairs, UW-Whitewater University Housing, the College of Arts and Communication, the James R. Connor University Center, and the UW-Whitewater Esports Club. With esports being such a broad new field of opportunity in education, all of these parties came together to identify that the UW-Whitewater campus is a perfect candidate for the focus and development of an esports studio space and beyond.

With all University of Wisconsin System Institutions being tasked to hone their identity, this provides an incredible opportunity to further define and continue the excellence of opportunity and accessibility provided on the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater campus. The opportunity for improving retention, recruitment, and revenue on the UW-Whitewater campus is almost certain with the approval and construction of this space.

More information will be available in the near future regarding this Inclusive Esports Studio Space.

The UW-Whitewater Esports Club has been a staple for gaming on the UW-Whitewater Campus since its founding in 2018. If you are interested in learning more about the UW-W Esports Club, reach out to esports@uww.edu or join the open community Discord!
