Gaming Nights

Residents gather for game night

Open and free to all University Housing residents, Gaming Nights are an opportunity for students to take a break from their hectic academic lives and spend some time relaxing. Games, refreshments, pizza, and equipment will all be provided!

Residents bring the friendly competition! Game against your friends, or play a solo game, but be sure to come play. Gaming Nights are open to all Housing Residents, not just the hall that it is being held in!
