LAN hall in Canberra?

By Bray 2 January 2012 23

I need a Hall to hold a gaming event (LAN).

I can’t find any that allow overnight stay while even offering $300.

If anyone knows anywhere we could go, please share.

Maybe insurance for many of these buildings/rooms is also an issue, or government licensing restrictions? Just about everywhere I’ve hired usually had a midnight policy.

Ahh Nerdfest, how I miss the late nights of Quake, CS, TFC and lots of pizza!

Now, instead of the AMD Athlon II, Nvidia TNT II, and 512mb ram all spaciously laid out in a beige full tower, I have an iMac an Xbox and a job… how things change 🙂

I think I have a l have a spacious beige tower with about that spec in the garage still… Not really sure why. Has vintage gaming become a thing yet, like vintage motorcross?

not totally legal but if you know someone in any of the Unis(ANU or UC)..most of them have computer labs open 24/7. Most of the Labs can fit 20 people and UC one might fit 10 more. Power sockets are aplenty and comfy chairs as well. There is a larger room in ANU labs with space for 40-50 people but it gets locked after hours…

The ANU does lease rooms for appropriate activities – see

I’m not sure what the rules/fees are for this kind of thing, but here are some room suggestions: The Copland building labs are nice (there are a few beside each other that open out to a nice outdoor area) – but no food/drink allowed. Otherwise, Melville Hall and BYO computers.
