The Gaming Lab on the 4th floor of the Library in the Discovery Centre is available for playing Steam games and console games. Book the gaming lab.

We began collecting games in 2008 at the request of faculty teaching in the Computer Game Development stream in the Bachelor of Computer Science Honours program and the Interactive Multimedia and Design program under the Bachelor of Information Technology degree.

Our collection now supports teaching and research across a variety of subject disciplines including: computer animation, video effects, game design, virtual reality systems, graphic design, 3D visualization, human-computer interaction, cultural and narrative studies.
