We have over 250 societies - there is bound to be one for you! On this page you can find out more about societies, join them, start them up, or find resources for exec members.




The University of Warwick Computing Society is a free-to-join academic society open to anyone with an interest in computing, technology, or gaming.

We host weekly socials and gaming events, and twice a term we hold weekend-long LAN parties.

We also regularly run workshops, hackathons, and talks, with past speakers including Warwick graduates, and guests from Google, LSEG, TPP, and IBM.

Weekly Events:

Note: Due to the COVID-19 situation our usual events are being postponed until further notice. Our gaming session has been moved online:

  • Online Gaming (Friday Night): Join us on our Discord server every Friday from 6pm until late to find fellow students to play games with. We provide a number of voice channels for teamspeak as well as a lobby for finding groups to game with.

Our regular weekly events, which will return when it is safe:

  • Pub Social (Monday Evening): Join us for our weekly pub meetup! A casual event where we chat about all manner of things over a meal and a pint.
  • Gaming (Friday Night): Join us in the Computing Department for a night of Gaming! We have an extensive library of games, covering Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and more! Also available is a HTC Index (the latest virtual reality headset), and a number of computer terminals with access to a collection of DRM-free games and Steam.

Other Events:

Note: Until further notice, our academic talks will be run online via our Discord voice channels, our Twitch channel, or other streaming services (to be announced alongside any such event).

  • We run weekly Academic Talks/Workshops each term, covering a range of computer science subjects such as computer security, network engineering, and opportunities for undergraduates.
  • If our late-night gaming sessions aren't enough, we also run LAN Parties, where you can bring in a gaming set-up and engage in jolly cooperation for an entire weekend! At the end of each year, we run the Summer LAN for an entire week!
  • We host an annual charity speedrunning event WASD, raising money for SpecialEffect. We've raised over £5000 since the event began in 2015.
  • You can also expect the occasional casual event. Prior years have seen us go head-to-head in laserquest, or go-karting.
