Bringing people together, through gaming.

Welcome to rKade at UWE.

rKade opened at the University of the West of England (UWE) in September 2019. rKade is a start-up created by UWE graduate, Kade McConville.

rKade is for casual gamers, the competitive gamers and the nostalgic – there’s something for everyone and you can take it as (un)seriously as you like!

We are a relaxed community bringing people together through gaming.

We have PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2 & PlayStation 1 consoles ready for you to play alone or, even better, with others at rKade.

Play the latest releases such as FIFA 20, NBA 2K20, Fortnite, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and so much more.

There’s a lot of time to fill between lectures. Drop in and play games….

Where are We?

rKade is located above the Student Union shop in F Block.

FIFA 20 Tournaments

rKade hosts FIFA Tournaments every Friday between 2pm-5pm.

We have four PS4’s, so there won’t be any waiting around. It’s a Champions League style format, meaning you will play at least 3 games in the tournament before knockout stages!

Cash prizes and giveaways, including week passes, are up for grabs.

FIFA tournaments are free and exclusive for Week Pass holders. Buy your Week Pass before 6pm each Thursday and be sure to register for the tournament!

Can You Get Involved?

rKade is a platform for anyone who enjoys video games.

Want to get get into games journalism? Want to venture into streaming? Looking to get social media, marketing or content creation on your CV?

We are looking to collaborate with UWE Students who can offer their talent and creativity to this exciting project.

There’s plenty of opportunities at rKade. Just drop us a message.


What is rKade?

My name is Kade, a recent UWE graduate (Business & Law) and I am the creator of rKade. As you can tell from my name, rKade is my own take on the classic arcades of the 1980’s, re-inventing them into the rKades of today.

rKade is a member-only gaming lounge – buy your membership and play unlimited games in a chilled and modern environment.

Why rKade?

When I was a student, waiting between lectures wasn’t fun. There’s only so much revision(?) you can do in the library and so many pints you can chug in the SU – rKade is the perfect place to fill those gaps in your timetable.

Instead of charging gamers by the hour, like other gaming locations, rKade offers day/week passes for even better value.

rKade’s decor is bright, chilled and an alternative gaming louge that is made for the casual gamer.

Opening Times

rKade is open Monday to Friday between 11:0018:00.

What are the rules?

rKade is all about being a chilled experience, therefore there are some rules at rKade to make sure everything is cool…

  • No student id, no entry.
  • No food in the rKade. No one likes crumbs and grease on the controllers.
  • Drinks are sold at rKade and you can bring you own – but keep away from consoles, TV’s and all electrical equipment. Use common sense, please. Anything damaged must be replaced by the person responsible.
  • Respect the equipment – standard really.
  • At busy times, management will decide the playing rota i.e. FIFA 20, two players per console, 4 minutes halves, 2 on 2 off. i.e. no winner stays on rules.
