This committee plans events design to engage technology and gaming components in the Kansas Union’s new Roll20 e-sports lounge. Popular events include Hackathons, Tourney Tuesdays, tabletop gaming nights, and Planet Comicon bus trips.
Roll20 (The Orr Group, LLC) was founded by three KU alumni who are dedicated to enabling gamers to unite across any distance via easy-to-use gaming tools. They strive to lessen the technical burden on the participants, facilitate the formation of new gaming groups, and to make barriers to entry as few as possible when gathering around a table for camaraderie.
The Roll20 Esports Lounge, located on level 1 of the Kansas Union, has been made possible in partnership between the Kansas Union, Student Union Activities, and Roll20. The space features flat screen TVs, reservable console gaming (currently featuring a Playstation 4, Wii, N64, and 3 Xbox 360s), computer stations for PC gaming, and reservable board games. To check out a console or board game, visit the Kansas Union Welcome Desk on level 4 of the Kansas Union, 11am-7pm, Monday-Friday. KUID is required for use.To allow groups to use the technology and gaming resources, the space is only reservable in partnership with SUA, for intended gaming usage, after 5PM and on weekends.
For other questions, or to suggest games or events, please use the SUA feedback form.
