Virtual escape room

University of Ottawa trivia mixed with the popularity of a classic escape room—you won’t want to miss these events!

Mobile Escapes

Initially conceived for Homecoming 2020, our virtual escape rooms have become a campus crowd favourite! These one-of-a-kind experiences are designed by Mobile Escapes, the brainchild of uOttawa alumni Eric Marcotte (BScHK ’15, BEd ’17) and Nicolas Marcil (BSocSc ’16, BEd ’18).

Race to escape!

From October 1 to December 31, 2021, race to escape! Mobile Escapes and uOttawa challenge you to escape from the haunted tunnels of campus in less than 60 minutes!

A game designed especially for uOttawa

We met up with Eric and Nicolas to hear about the origins of Mobile Escapes. Unlike other escape rooms, which are held in a fixed location, Mobile Escapes adapts the traditional escape room concept to different environments. 

Past uOttawa virtual escape rooms have dropped teams into haunted campus tunnels and challenged their wellness savvy. Follow the clues for the chance to win great uOttawa prizes, from Flex dollars to campus store gift cards!
