Gaming Loft

Stay and Play in the officially awesome DMC Gaming Loft! Located in the 2nd floor of Charles Commons above the lobby off at the Charles Street entrance. There are 5 high end Gaming PCs, a Xbox station with FIFA and several other games loaded onto it, a Bring Your Own Console station, and a ping pong table.

Policies for the space include:

  • No food or drink allowed.
  • Make sure to remove all your trash and belongings when you leave the space.
  • Do not alter the hardware configuration. If you bring your own mouse or controller, plug them into the USB ports on the top of the tower. Replace keyboard wrist rest and mouse weights at the end of your reservation.
  • Report any hardware issues to dmcstaff@jhu.edu OR on DISCORD at #gaming-help. Make sure that you include the station number (see the red numbers on the monitors/PC towers)
  • Need an administrator password to install or update software? Call the Digital Media Center desk at (410)-516-3817 during business hours (Sun-Thur 12PM-12Am, Fri-Sat 12PM-10PM) and a staffer can connect remotely to your computer and enter the password for you.
  • Be courteous to residents and fellow gamers (IRL and online).
  • Reserve a Gaming PC through BookIt (bookit.dmc.jhu.edu). Making a reservation gives you the right to use the computer when demand is high.
