Hey again!

So what our society is about is trying to bring New Players, such as yourself, into a group that levels up your Uni experience. We host a gaming night every week, with a number of games on offer - from NES to PS4. Don't worry about it being too hardcore, it's all laid back and casual, so everyone's welcome whatever your taste. On top of the weekly meetups, we have regular social nights, tournaments where you can win a prize, very frequent online multiplayer sessions - and even a Twitch stream! So there's plenty of stuff on offer to get involved with!

Our nights are on every Tuesday at 7pm in 2X4/X6. If you want to just come along with a laptop or a gaming device of your own and chill, that's cool too. 

If E-Sports are your thing, we try to put teams together for the National University E-Sports League (NUEL). This year will be no different, so when we have the details of it, we'll be sure to tell you.
