Come check out the Nexus Esports facility at the UND Wellness Center!
Serving UND Students and Wellness Center members, the Nexus Esports facility features twelve top-of-the-line gaming PCs that you can use to play your favorite games. Forget about having to drag your expensive bulky PC to campus, or struggling with lag and overheating on your old PC or laptop! As we develop our programs, we are looking for what you want to see, so please complete this brief survey to help us out!
We want to show that Esports is beneficial to the overall health of our student body. The intellectual and social benefits that it provides are so important to today's students. The Nexus gaming lounge is located in the Wellness Center to promote healthy ways of gaming, such as taking frequent breaks to exercise, fuel properly, and participate in new activities.
What does NEXUS mean?
Nexus is defined as, "A series of connections linking two or more things, a connected group or series, and the central and most important point or place." We wanted the name to show just how much we wanted this space to bring people together and create a sense of community. Come alone, leave with a new friend!
