The Barnes Center at The Arch features a designated esports gaming room. Get your game on in this inclusive, welcoming and safe space where participants of any skill level can explore and enjoy the exciting world of video gaming. This space includes a virtual reality unit, 36 personal computer (PC) gaming stations and six console gaming stations for Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo. Check out a game from our library to play with your friends or train by yourself!

Come game with us during drop-in hours, or reserve your gaming station in advance. Individual and group reservations are available through the Wellness Portal. Complete reservations at least three hours prior but no sooner then 48-hours in advance of the requested start time.
