The Price Science Commons & Research Library has a robust collection of console video games for circulation to UO students, staff and faculty. We have a few games produced for the Nintendo 64, but most materials are for generations of consoles at least as recent as Wii, PS3, and XBox.
These games are located near the checkout desk of the Price Science Commons & Research Library, and may be found in the online catalog under their titles or by choosing "UO libraries" in the dropdown to the right of the search box and looking for keywords such as Wii or Xbox, and then using the facets on the left to narrow to game materials.
Please ask for help at our desk if you need help locating a particular game, or stop by the library to browse the collection in person. Borrowing policy information can be found on the Borrowing web pages which are arranged by user affiliation.
We have approximately 800 games. We are accepting donations, if you have older games which might work on one of our systems and which are in good shape. Contact Jimmy Murray to discuss donations.
We're also interested in learning what additional games we should purchase when funds allow. If you have suggestions, please visit the Libraries' materials request form, fill in your suggestion, and choose "Games" as the subject area.
In 2023-24 we are launching a gaming center, which will support gaming courses and programs on campus. More information will be forthcoming, but it will support tabletop, console, and PC games, will be free to all UO students, and will support both events and drop-in gaming.
