About Us

FragSoc is the University of York’s PC & LAN Gaming society as part of the University of York Student Union. We run 8 LAN parties a year, each taking place over a weekend. With around 90 people attending each LAN, all bringing both PCs, laptops and consoles, they are a great place to meet like-minded people. We play a variety of games ranging from FPS to Real-Time-Strategy to racing games. At each LAN we run events for both fun and prizes, which are always friendly and not too competitive.

If LANs arent your thing, be sure to join us for our In-Houses over discord! With games ranging from Golf with your friends to Garry's mod, theres sure to be something for everyone.

For you streamers, be on the lookout for the signups for our streaming schedule! Take the opportunity to become a part of the fragsoc casting community and stream one day every fortnite on our twitch channel!

We also run Smash tournaments 2-3 times a year, with players from all over the UK attending to take the trophy. Weekly causal meetings also allow members of the university to relax and play against each other, with equipment and rooms provided.

Anyone intending to take part in inter-university competition and esports is also very welcome. Every year we help organise teams that take part in the NSE, NUEL, ESL Masters and many other UK competitions. The University of York also hosts the Roses tournament alongside the University of Lancaster, which we also compete in alongside all of the traditional and weird and wonderful sports.
