Students playing Jenga

Are you and your friends looking for some healthy competition? Want to host a game night? The Game Collection is available for you to borrow video, board, and lawn games for first-year student events and personal use. Our current stock is listed below. If you do not see your favorite game, email us with your suggestion.

To check out a game, simply come to the First-Year Experience Office. Note that board and lawn games may be checked out for three days, while XBOX games may be borrowed for seven days. Lost or damaged games will result in a charge to your term bill. XBOX consoles are located in the common rooms of Straus, Pennypacker, and Grays.
