Esports at Norwich University
With NU esports, students who are competitive gamers now have this exciting new opportunity to get involved at the college level. Norwich’s esports teams play at the varsity, junior varsity, and club levels, and meet regularly to practice and compete with colleges around the world. Currently, our teams are playing:
- Rocket League
- Counter Strike
- Rainbow Siege
Our esports teams compete globally with other universities and have access to our state-of-the-art equipment, brand new facilities, and experienced faculty mentorship. Many of our varsity players are majoring in Computer Science or Computer Security and Information Assurance.
Students who attend the Esports Summer Camp in Fall 2022 and who subsequently enroll at Norwich University as a full-time degree-seeking student will receive a scholarship worth $2000 toward their tuition and fees during the first semester of their enrollment at Norwich. This scholarship is not renewable, is only valid at Norwich University, and only applies to the first term of enrollment.
Participants in our esports varsity teams are also eligible for an annual $3,000 scholarship toward their Norwich University tuition. Students interested in receiving this scholarship must try out for the team and be accepted as a varsity team member based on academic standing, experience, ability, and fit. Attendance at our ESports camp does not guarantee being accepted as a varsity ESport team member or receiving the annual $3,000 scholarship offered to varsity team members.
