The Arena

The Esports Arena at GHC is located in room 2312 on the third floor of the Manspeaker Instructional Building (building 2000, main campus, Aberdeen).

Thanks to the Associated Students of Grays Harbor College (ASGHC) and our sponsors, our arena features 12 top-of-the-line MSI Trident computers, Logitech gaming gear, and gaming chairs. In addition to the PCs, we have a central Nintendo station featuring two Switches, network connectivity, and dual-displays - including a 65" LG UHD TV display for spectators. The arena also houses our dedicated broadcast production and VOD review station.
