The Columbus Technical College CLICK Gamer Lab is located with the Library and provides a home to the Columbus Technical College Gamer Club and a space for student recreation as well as a showcase lab for campus tours and for multimedia presentations.

Video Games have been shown to provide some excellent benefits to cognition, hand eye coordination, mental health, and social skills (See Sources Below).

The Gamer Lab greatly benefits all Columbus Technical College students by providing a place to relax from the pressures of college coursework, as well as allowing the students an arena to engage socially with peers with diverse backgrounds.
