Become a part of the AUEA and help shape the future of Australian university esports.


At the Australian University Esports Association (AUEA), we firmly believe that control of university esports should be in the hands of the universities themselves. We recognize that universities know their students best, understand their unique cultures, and are perfectly placed to foster an esports environment that aligns with their specific goals and needs.

Our role is not to control, but rather to empower. We provide the tools, resources, and support universities need to cultivate their own vibrant esports communities. From event organization and management to funding and collaborations, we equip universities with what they need to independently drive their esports initiatives forward.

Our aim is to ensure that esports serves as an enriching element of the university experience, contributing to personal development, academic success, and overall student satisfaction. We champion a model of esports that aligns with educational values and objectives, putting the interests of students at the forefront.
