We get esports can change the game for today’s students.

Collegiate esports has seen a major boom in recent years. Thoughtful, purpose-built gaming programs not only serve as a key recruitment differentiator, but also create opportunities to compete against other colleges and universities, design interdepartmental curricula, prepare students to work in the ever-growing esports industry, and generate revenue.


Coordinated planning and support are essential to establishing an esports program with lasting impact. Whether rolling out a handful of gaming stations or building out a 500-seat esports arena, CDW can help.

We outfit educational spaces with the latest gaming PCs and accessories, perform network capacity and speed assessments and upgrades, and even design a gaming room layout to account for ergonomic player seating and a fun spectator experience.

Our esports consultative services help you visualise and plan your ideal esports program.
