Welcome to Warwick QuizSoc!
Who we are
We are the go-to society for all things quizzical on campus - and we are currently the Society of the Year!
We have a friendly Exec who are more than welcome to answer any questions you may have. Find out who they are via our 'Meet the Exec' series over on our Facebook page.
For a summary of who we are and what we do, watch our intro video below!
You can find a transcript to this video here.
What we do
Every Tuesday and Thursday from 6pm
There is a variety of questions and rounds available each week for anybody willing to give it a go, including quick-fire quizzing and a more University Challenge style of quizzing.
If you're not sure about what Buzzer Quiz involves either, don't worry! All levels of experience are welcome so come along and show off your quizzing skills!
Every other Friday from 7.30pm in The Graduate
Our great exec put together entertaining rounds of science, history, entertainment, literature and more for you to enjoy over a pint or a bite to eat every other week. Bring your friends, flatmates, coursemates or anybody you would like to and form yourself a quizzing team! Alternatively, there is always the option to turn up on your own and be matched up into a team when you arrive to make some new quizzing friends!
Entry is free for members and £1 per person for non-members (with an extra £1 per team for the bonus round for both members and non-members). And obviously, there is a variety of excellent prizes to be won!
Are you ready to show Oxbridge who's boss? Always wanted to meet Jeremy Paxman? Want to follow in the footsteps of last years' team? QuizSoc organizes University Challenge tryouts every year. Updates of dates and times will be available on our social media soon, so make sure to follow us!
As a society we also organise a host of fantastic socials for our members throughout the year. From end-of-term meals to laser tag to special events at Christmas time, we have a bunch of socials for you to sink your teeth into (which don't always involve quizzing!). All our events are suitable for non-drinkers too, so everybody is welcome.
We also participate in tournaments against other universities both away and at home, and of course we have all our events running all year round for you to get involved in!

Coronavirus update - Term 1 2021/2022
Our events are now scheduled to be back in-person as above, but in the event that circumstances prevent them, then we will fall back on the details described below.
We would also politely request, for the safety and wellbeing of other members, that if you have reason to believe that you have COVID (either through symptoms or a positive test), or have been in close contact with someone who has, that you do not attend our in-person events, and only resume attendance when safe to do so.
Our events over the past year have been happening online! Our Pub Quizzes have taking place on Facebook Live every other week on Friday at 7:30pm with a link to Microsoft Form for you to fill in all your answers. As these version of our Pub Quizzes have been happening online, they are completely free but unfortunately there have been no prizes. All of our past Pub Quizzes are also archived on our Facebook page for you to go back and have a go at if you fancy.
Our Buzzer Quizzes have still been taking place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6pm over on our Discord server. Simply join the voice channel where the questions will be read out and type 'buzz' rather than actually buzzing! Join our Discord here! In term 1 we hope to have a hybrid of in-person and online - we'll let you know closer to the time what format this will take.
Socials have also been taking place still with new online socials, such as our bake-along, gaming evenings and Coffee Morning. Our socials are taking place on a range of platforms so make sure to follow us to stay updated.
All new Quick Quizzes will go up on Wednesdays can also be found over on our Facebook page, which feature members of the exec doing unique rounds on more specific and niche areas of knowledge for you to try at your leisure.
