League of Legends is a fast-paced, competitive online game that blends the speed and intensity of an RTS (Real-Time Strategy) with RPG (Role-Playing Game) elements.

With an ever-expanding roster of champions, frequent updates and a thriving tournament scene, League of Legends offers endless replayability for players of every skill level.

Students ages 16+ are allowed to stay overnight on campus in our residential dorms. The cost for residential students is $1,295.
