Welcome to the Doug Bernstein Game Room, UConn’s Home for Games and Bowling! The Doug Bernstein Game Room is one of the best places on campus to relax with your friends. Located in the Student Union, off of Union Street, we feature 2 lanes of mini bowling, 3 pool tables, Foosball, air hockey and more! We also offer exciting games on Xbox One, WiiU, XBox360, and PS4 consoles.

The Doug Bernstein Game Room is where you can spend time between classes, whether you’re meeting friends or looking for new ones. We are open for all UConn students, so stop by and let the good times roll!!!

The Game Room is named in honor of Doug Bernstein, a 1985 graduate of UConn and a former SUBOG President and McCullough Award winner. Doug and his wife Melissa made a $100,000 gift to the Student Union which endows a student leadership program – The Leadership Legacy Experience.

All games require tokens which are available for purchase in the game room. Game cost ranges from 1 to 4 tokens (or $0.25 to $1.00).
