Breaking New Ground

Funded by MPG Impact Development, a new Albright College residence hall, located across from Gene L. Shirk Stadium and between Exeter and Bern streets, will offer five stories of suite-style living for sophomore, junior and senior students.

Esports Hub Planned for Campus

Albright will build a new state-of-the-art collegiate esports facility at the corner of 13th and Richmond streets in collaboration with Nerd Street Gamers, the national esports infrastructure company, and CSL Esports, a Playfly Sports company. The new esports venue will make professional grade gaming equipment available to community members, high school teams and tournament organizers. MPG Impact Development will partner with Albright to develop the property. Nerd Street and CSL Esports are known for launching the largest collegiate esports league in North America — the National Association of Collegiate Esports (NACE) Starleague, of which Albright College’s esports team is a member.
