Where Gamers Go. Where Gamers Grow.
Built for casual and serious gamers alike, gameLab is a space built by and for gamers. Divided into two team bases, each with five PCs, gameLab offers students space to practice, collaborate, and compete in some of the most popular e-sports games out there. Located in the OCCC Library on the third floor (LIB 320(A) & LIB 320(B)), gameLab is part of the division of Business & Information Technology, developed in-house in partnership with Student Life and Information Technology Services.

Don’t Talk About People’s Mamas
If you want to game like a pro, act like one. We get that losing is frustrating, winning is exciting, and teamwork takes work, but OCCC is an inclusive, welcoming place, and that goes for gameLab, too. Watch your language, don’t behave or communicate in a way that’s threatening, discriminatory, or hateful to anyone, and be respectful of people’s boundaries and beliefs. You’re responsible for upholding the student conduct standards that apply to anywhere else on campus.
