ConSuite Gaming

IMG_6398

ConSuite gaming is located in the cabana rooms between the CONvergence ConSuite. Since there’s a finite amount of space in ConSuite gaming, and it always seems to be full, there will be a new check-out system designed to let you take games to other parts of the building to play! You will need to sign-out the games with your name and badge number and are expected to bring back games when are done playing, with all pieces, parts, etc. intact and in their proper places.

ConSuite Gaming Hours

  • Thursday 3:00pm – 24 HRS
  • Friday 24HRS
  • Saturday 24HRS
