About the Arena & Lounge
The Alienware Longhorn Esports Arena launched in October 2023 and is now open to the campus community! The 3,400-square-foot Arena, located in the Texas Union Underground, is a full-scale gaming space outfitted with 43 Alienware stations, a varsity room, a production center, a console game space and a viewing area.
The Alienware Longhorn Esports Lounge creates an elite gaming environment for students to play, train, and compete at the highest level in esports competitions, locally and globally. The Lounge is located on the main level of the Texas Union and features more than ten gaming stations and a multiplayer console area.
Alienware collaborated and invested in the design and technology of the Arena, just as it did with the Lounge. With these spaces combined, students now have more than 50 stations to use for gaming.
The Lounge & Arena are open to all UT affiliates with a valid UT ID.
Who can access the lounge?
Only valid UT ID holders with an active EID can access computers. If you do not have a valid UT ID you may still access the Xbox Series-S if you are playing with a physically present valid UT ID holder.
