Esports at UMass Dartmouth

Welcome to Corsair Esports! With 9 teams and over 200 UMassD students, staff, and alumni in the Corsair Esports umbrella, there are endless opportunities to build your skills, network, and leadership traits in one of UMass Dartmouth's largest student-run organizations and one of the fastest-growing industries internationally. 

Press start

UMassD students and alumni interested in joining the Esports club are encouraged to join the team's Discord server. To play competitively, players must be a current UMassD student with a minimum 2.0 grade point average. 

Game over? 

The time commitment is as much or as little as you want, as long as it's within healthy terms and doesn't get in the way of your education. You can be loosely affiliated and play a couple hours a week or dedicate a lot of time to the game and your team. Like all of college, your experience is what you make of it.

Powered by CDW

In the fall of 2023, Corsair Esports opened the doors to a brand-new arena in the lower level of the Claire T. Carney Library, thanks to a corporate partnership with CDW providing nearly $40,000 of in-kind donations.  

Those funds led to 11 new gaming stations each equipped with Spectrum sit-to-stand desks, Genova gaming chairs, Lenovo computer systems and monitors, Logitech headsets, keyboards, and mice, and a Spectrum Shoutcaster double station (broadcast booth for commentary).  

The arena provides team members both free exposure to state-of-the-art equipment and high-speed internet, but also space for gamers to come together in an inclusive culture.
