Temple University introducing dedicated esports and gaming center on Ambler campus

While esports isn’t new to the offerings at Temple University, during the spring 2024 semester the university for the first time will introduce space dedicated solely to the program at the campus in Ambler. It will be located on the third floor of the Ambler Learning Center.

According to an article on the Temple University website, the space will offer 12 Alienware gaming computers with 25-inch, high-definition monitors and specialized gaming chairs. Each will be equipped with a gaming keyboard and mouse, mics and headsets. Also available will be gaming systems such as Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch.

In the article, Eric Semborski, manager of internal events and special projects for the university stated that the esports center was for a dual purpose, “so that it has the capacity for competitive esports competition while also being a welcoming space where anyone felt comfortable to come and relax for a little while between classes or for outside groups to come and hold an event or teambuilding program.”
