Community College Esport Case Study

Suny Jamestown Community College

What We Did

Esport Supply assisted Suny Jamestown Community College’s Cattaraugus County Campus in turning the old train station on campus into a gaming facility for students.

Our team of experts went on site to measure and discuss upgrades needed including electrical and network solutions to support the gaming infrastructure. From there, Esport Supply created 2D and 3D renderings and provided all furniture, including:

  • 20 gaming stations
  • 1 coaching station
  • 21 chairs
  • Console & lounge seating
  • Lockers
  • Console stations
  • LAN management software
  • Technical assessment on PC-integrated lighting

The gaming facility opened to students on December 2, 2022.

The space includes an area for competitions with mezzanine spectator seating, a team meeting and practice room, coaches office, and a space for console games and concessions. 

The facility will serve as a host site for regional high school tournaments and other competitions.

Students began school sanctioned competition in the new space beginning January 2023. The college is also exploring adding an eSports management degree program to its academic offerings!
