With average LAN attendance around 60 people, everything from Call of Duty to Armagetron are options; no Sponges left behind!

Fighting game community

Hosted on campus fortnightly, this is the go too if you love fighting games. Brawl, melee, Street fighter V are just a few of the games to be named that are frequently played.
