A Place to Relax with Friends

The Games Room, located in the Rensselaer Student Union, is a place to meet friends and unwind over a friendly game. Most who visit the Games Room will be quick to notice the ping pong and billiards tables. However, this space also contains the 2009 Game Lounge for playing video games and other activities. In addition, students may check out various board games.

To utilize Games Room games and equipment, students must give their Rensselaer ID to the Games Room staff in exchange for the item(s) they wish to use. IDs are returned to students upon returning borrowed items.
