Gaming and LAN Events
Each academic year, we host 8 LAN parties for our members to attend over a full weekend, hosting up to 80 members at a time. Console and PC gamers alike are welcome to bring along their games to play on the uni network, usually hosted at either the Law and Management Building on Heslington East or the Physics and Exhibition Centre on Heslington West.
There are many planned events such as tourneys, couch parties, viewing parties, 24-hour servers and much more are open to anyone wanting to participate, some even sporting prizes and goodies to win!
Once you arrive, our committee will PAT test any equipment you have and you are welcome to set up using the network ports and power sockets available! You will also be required to sign-in to our dedicated LAN channels in the FragSoc Discord to stay up to date on scheduled events and announcemenets. Additionally, the buildings in which we host our events provide seperate rooms for members who wish to stay overnight.
As well as online events, FragSoc holds a number of social events every few weeks to break the ice and provide an opportunity to meet likeminded peers.
These include group meals, pub quizzes, board game socials and much more! Members of committee are always in attendance and these events are a great way to meet the rest of the community.
University of York Esports
With the ever-growing student esports scene, we are the University of York's hub for national tournaments, varsity events and inter-college challenges within the University.
Each term we field teams for a range of games to compete in NSE and The NUEL tournaments, as well as ESL Masters, ETF2L, RotR and much more! Esports currently holds 4 points in our annual Roses event and FragSoc helps the University of York and Lancaster University organise teams and events each year.
At FragSoc we also have a dedicated Twitch channel with a regular stream schedule consisting of our very own members. Contact the current Stream Managers if you would like to give streaming a go as we have plenty of resources to help you get started.
Special events and tournaments are also produced and streamed on this account so make sure to give us a follow. In the last charity stream we ran, we raised over £2600 to be split between Doctors without Borders, Macmillan Cancer Support and York Marrow!
FragSoc is a large society and that means we have many events and socials for you to enjoy! We hold weekly Smash events for our Super Smash Bros. sub-society, we’ve held the largest CS:GO LAN event in the UK and so much more. Why not become a member and take a look?
