Gallaudet University

What We Did

Gallaudet University is the first and only deaf-led collegiate esports program in the world and only collegiate esports program where communication is primarily in American Sign Language (ASL).

Esport Supply helped with project management and developed 2D and 3D designs of the 1,850 sq ft space. 49 gaming desks were provided for the space that includes a competition stage, practice stations, and their 350 sq ft varsity space.

  • Project Management
  • 2D design
  • 3D design
  • Infrastructure analysis
  • Internet review
  • Power pull planning
  • 49 Gaming Desks
With the help of Esport Supply, Gallaudet was able to bring an esports arena to life.

Gallaudet University’s esports program is launching in spring of 2023. As a member of the National Association of Collegiate Esports (NACE), Gallaudet University competes against teams all over the country. 

The space promotes an open and inclusive environment for students to be a part of a community and connect with others with a passion for gaming. In addition to competition, students are also hands-on involved with planning and organizing events and promotion and development of the program itself.
