Sharky's Game Room

Host Your Event in Sharky's

Sharky's Gameroom Set-Up


Please note: Due to ongoing physical distancing restrictions as a result of COVID-19, Sharky's Game Room will not be open in the Fall 2020 semester and will not be available to reserve until further notice.

Sharky's Game Room is available for a variety of special events including open mics, parties, retreats, receptions, group meetings, acoustic music, etc.  Sharky's is a dynamic space that can be moved around to accommodate a variety of event needs and interest.

Depending on your event needs, you have the option to include use of all games and equipment, including two pool tables and ping pong. Enjoy Xbox One and Nintendo Switch our four stations in our large-screen electronic gaming lounge, while selecting from our library of video games. The maximum capacity for a Sharky's event is 75 people.

A standard reservation in Sharky's Game Room is considered open to the public. If you wish to make your event private, meaning that only your guests may enter Sharky's to use the gaming equipment during your event, an additional per hour charge will be added to the bill. Sharky's is unavailable for parties when there is an event in Lumina Theater, as we must accommodate movie and concession sales.

Please reserve Sharky's at least 3 business days before your event, in order to ensure adequate staffing. The reservation delegate for a student organization, campus office or department may make a reservation on the Campus Reservation System.

Off-campus businesses and community organizations may email to inquire about reservations. Please indicate your date and time preferences.

No outside food or beverages are allowed to be brought into Sharky's for your reservation. All food service must be provided by the UNCW Catering or Sharky's. When you reserve a space, make sure that you indicate whether or not you will be serving food or beverages. As soon as you have a confirmed space reservation, contact Campus Catering at 910-962-3600 or to make your food service arrangements.



Sharky's new stage can be reserved separately from the Game Room.  Tech equipment and staffing will apply, based upon your event needs.  Performance platform rental does not include free game play and all gaming stations will remain open to guests if you do not pay for a private event.
