Games Lab

two students work on computers in the games lab

This hybrid classroom/lab is used primarily for Game classes. One half of the room features a classroom space with 25 dual boot iMac workstations with dual monitors as well as dual 3D-capable projectors. In the other half, couches surround HD displays with classic and contemporary gaming consoles. This configuration allows students to seamlessly engage in the theory and practice of gaming.

For instance, a games professor may be discussing a classic Atari 2600 game. If students are not familiar with it, they can play the game in the same space. Or, if students are designing and developing a game, they can write it on one of the workstations, then play it while sitting on a couch.
