Thank you for your interest in the League of Legends collegiate community! Since 2012, passionate college students have worked diligently to create local communities that come together to celebrate gaming culture and League of Legends. Find out how you can get involved!
The uLoL Program
What is university league of Legends?
University of League of Legends (uLoL) was created to support and empower League of Legends communities on college campuses all over the U.S. and Canada. These communities are known as “uLoL Clubs” and are comprised of passionate, enthusiastic students who share one thing in common: a love for League of Legends. Clubs are run by collegiate Organizers who strive to create memorable and engaging experiences for all of their members through social events, tournaments, parties,mentor programs, and informal get-togethers. uLoL Clubs are run by students for students; Riot simply provides support and guidance where possible.
Is there a uLoL Club at my school?
There might be! Visit the uLoL map to see if there's a uLoL Club at your school.
uLoL Club Registration
How do I start a club?
While multiple uLoL Clubs are allowed at one school, we encourage you to integrate yourself into an existing club if one has already been created. If you’ve discovered that there’s no club on your campus and you believe you have what it takes to be a great Organizer, registering a uLoL Club is simple, but there are a few things you should have ready before you start:
- Identify who your fellow officers will be, and get their name and email.
- Compile basic information about your university.
- If your club already exists and you are simply re-registering for a new academic year, compile your club’s basic information.
- (Optional) Reach out to a member of your school’s faculty prior to starting the club. While this isn’t a mandatory step in the registration process, a Faculty Advisor should be able to help you navigate any roadblocks that arise with your school or administration
- Now that you’ve got all the info ready it’s time to register your club on our uLoL club registration page.
Do I have to have an already-established club to register?
No, you don’t! Registering your club is a great way to set the foundation and start growing a community at your school.
Can I start a club if I’m not a full-time student at a university?
Part-time students are welcome to start a club, but you need to be registered with your university and currently attending classes.
How many officers can my club have?
uLoL Clubs can have up to 5 registered officers in the Collegiate Program. If you have a particularly large club and would like to have unofficial officers in addition to your registered 5, that’s fine with us!
How can I update my club’s info?
It’s normal for things like mailing addresses, club leadership, and contact information to change. It’s important for you to keep your information up-to-date to ensure we’re able to contact you if necessary. You can edit your information whenever you'd like directly from the uLoL website!
Do I have to register my club every year?
We start off every academic year with a blank slate. That means we need you to register your officers even if they're the same as last year. If none of your club info has changed, registration should be a breeze!
Can I register my school if it is located in a country outside the U.S. and Canada?
If you’re from a country outside of the NA Region, email uLoL@riotgames.com and we’ll do our best to get you in touch with someone from your region. Just keep in mind that each region runs their collegiate program a little differently.
Can high school students register a club?
Right now registration is just for college communities and we’re not supporting high school clubs in the same way. If your high school club is interested in running a tournament, you can apply for prizes on the League of Legends Community Events page.
Can Riot create custom art or swag for my club or school?
Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate these kind of requests due to the sheer number of schools that participate in the uLoL Program.
Can I use the Riot logo on a flyer/banner/social media site?
Riot does not sponsor Collegiate events, so please refrain from using the Riot logo on any art assets you own or create. If you would like to brand your event / club, you are welcome to use the League of Legends logo or the uLoL logo. If you choose to use the League of Legends or uLoL logos, please do not alter the logos in anyway.
Do Collegiate clubs get a discount at the merch store?
uLoL Club members and organizers do not receive a discount in the Merch Store.
How can I apply for a job at Riot?

How can I apply for an internship at Riot?
If you're an ambitious undergrad or grad student who shares our passion for games (especially League of Legends) and are eager to get into scrapes with challenging work, then think about spending your summer with us. Head to the NA careers page for program info and open positions.
Does Riot frown upon Collegiate clubs partnering with a 3rd party organizations?
Not at all! Riot does not own or directly manage any uLoL Clubs, so if you would like to partner with a 3rd party organization, feel free!
Can Riot sponsor our event?
Unfortunately, no. While we may offer support, this does not mean that your event is sponsored by Riot. Please refrain from advertising that Riot Games as an official sponsor for your event.
Can Riot donate swag or promote our event?
At the present time we do not have a program in place to support requests for swag, physical merch, or similar requests.
Can a Riot representative speak or host a booth at our event?
This is something we may consider on a case-by-case basis, but please know that it’s not something we typically do. Thousands of Collegiate events happen every year and there just aren’t enough Rioters to attend them all.
Can I visit Riot HQ?
While we would love to meet all of our Organizers, we unfortunately cannot meet with players on an ad hoc basis.
My question wasn’t covered in the FAQ. How do I get help?
If you’re in need of additional information, we encourage you to first ask your fellow Organizers for assistance. If your question is not something your peers can help you with, reach out to us at uLoL@riotgames.com
