The IIT-Chicago-Kent Game Room located in room 570 is now open. Staff and faculty can access the room using their keycards (students can enter using their ID’s).

The genesis of the Game Room idea came from the Class of 2011. They encouraged the administration to create non-academic space in the building for students to socialize in. They were so interested in creating the space that they dedicated their Class Gift to purchase games for the room. The Class of 2014 followed their lead and also dedicated their class gift to the Game Room.

Dawn Rupcich took the lead on investigating options and designing the layout of the Game Room.

The Game Room has the following:

  • Brunswick V-Force Air Hockey
  • Brunswick 14 Foot Delray Shuffleboard Table
  • Brunswick Electronic Shuffleboard Scorer
  • Brunswick SMASH 7.0 Table Tennis Game
  • Brunswick CONTENDER Kicker Foosball
