We host a variety of different events each semester, such as weekly game nights, tournaments and LAN parties.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I join this club?

EGS offers open-membership! Visit our membership page for more information.

Can I bring my own games and consoles to EGS events?

Of course! We always bring a couple spare TVs, extension cords and power strips to our events for anyone who needs them for their own set-up.

Can I bring my gaming PC?

Due to limited power outlets in the Davis Room, we recommend bringing laptops instead of PCs to our weekly game nights. However, for other events (e.g. LAN parties) we will be able to accommodate the need for power.

Can my club/organization rent equipment from EGS for an event?

We love collaborating with other clubs and organizations and are always willing to help run events by providing our equipment. If you are interested in collaborating, please email us at [email protected] with as much notice as possible.
