About Esports

Hawai‘i Pacific University is home of the first collegiate Esports Arena in the state of Hawaii. HPU is also the first college to offer competitive scholarships for eSport athletes in the state of Hawaii. Our scholarships are awarded to League of Legends student athletes who will be competing in the University League of Legends season. Our team is composed of  members from varying academic disciplines and are all HPU Shark athletes upholding the values of Pono, Kuleana, and Aloha.

Hawai‘i Pacific University’s Esports started as a small League of Legends club of 12 dedicated students across our three campuses. Overseen by Campus Recreation these students consistently arranged practices and scrimmages against other universities on the mainland. Searching for a more competitive outlet, HPU is now competing in the University League of Legends College Championship Series (uLoL) starting January, 2018. HPU is in full support of Esports and these athletes, which includes facilities and resources to properly compete.
