Room 404 – The CSG Room

Many of you have gotten the opportunity to check out the Coding/Maker Computer Lab and esports room in 404 in the MiLL. If you haven’t seen it yet, come check it out!

Cannon School Gaming (CSG) esports is a club open to all Cannon students. Email Mr Tran ( to join.

Please remember:

  • During class blocks, absolutely no gaming activities are allowed, as the room is an academic resource during that time. Absolutely no students may use the room during their drop period.
  • In order to gain access to the room outside of academic time, students need to be part of CSG (but not necessarily on a competitive team) in order to use the room so that they can be held accountable for CSG rules, Cannon’s RUP, and in-person/online behavior.
  • Before or after school, lunch time, and Office Hour (not Student Life or CORE) use is okay with a staff or faculty member present.
  • CSG esports team matches and practices take priority in the room.
  • Absolutely no food and drinks are allowed in the room or the couches outside, but you can eat at the MiLL tables . Water is okay but cannot be placed on desks.
