About Us

Welcome to SLUGS, the University of Sheffield’s gaming society!
 
As a society we have both competitive and casual players. If you want to take part in University esports, socialise through gaming or meet new people with similar interests then we are the society for you. We run weekly online socials where you can socialise through gaming and we aim to resume running our regular LAN events and bar socials when quarantine has been relaxed sufficiently.

More competitive gamers may compete in UK university leagues offered by NSE and The NUEL. In 2020 we collaborated with Hallam to offer our first esports varsity event and we are eager to hold more tournaments within the society in the future. Multiple teams can sign up for each game every season so players of all levels are encouraged to play. Team finder forms will be posed to the SLUGS Facebook page near the start of each competitive season, however players may also form their own teams independently.


If you want support with competitive gaming, be it finding a team, requesting coaching, or even casting opportunities, please get in touch with us on Facebook, a DM to a committee member on our Discord, or via email.
