Welcome to the CompSoc website
Do you have an interest in computers? Programming? Gaming? Building them? Are you interested in getting involved in building robots? If the answer is yes to any of those questions, then CompSoc is for you.
CompSoc is a friendly collection of people who share a loose interest in various forms of computing, and in having a good time. For more information about what we do, see our About Compsoc page. Our regular events are listed on the right.
Say hello to some current members on our IRC channel on irc.green-dragon.org (#compsoc). Not used IRC before? We've got a guide to getting connected. You can also access our IRC channel by this web client.

This site is CompSoc's window to the online world. It includes society news and details on all our upcoming events.
What is the Computing Society?
The Computing Society exists for anyone interested in computers to get together. We meet every Tuesday for a short talk followed by the pub, as well as running other events like LAN parties. We also support computing efforts in the area, especially where open source software is involved. See About Compsoc for more information.
So why come along to CompSoc?
CompSoc is a great way to meet other people interested in computers. Our talks and socials are generally open to anyone, so why not come along and see what you think?
CompSoc recently ran a petition to improve the ITS email service for anyone using clients other than Internet Explorer. Click here for more information. ITS now allow any undergraduate to request IMAP, thanks to everyone for their support.
