CompSoc 18/19

Welcome to CompSoc

Who We Are

CompSoc is the University of Leicester's leading technology enthusiast society. We run exciting socials, play sports for fun, and build relationships between students who love technology at the University of Leicester.

If you're a technology fan, STEM student, gamer or just down for a good night out, you've come to the right place! Membership only costs Β£3 for the year.

You can't join online at the moment as the Students' Union website is experiencing some issues. We'll let you know when this is resolved. In the meantime, you can join in person at Fresh Fair on 26th and 27th September.
