Swansea University Computer Society

SUCS is one of the university's longest-running and largest societies. In addition to providing members with a range of IT services, we hold regular events and socials throughout the year.

We have our own computer room on campus with 24 hour swipe-card access. There are usually members present through the week so feel free to stop by.

Visit the Community section of the site for more ways to get in touch with your fellow members, including Milliways, our chat room, and our new forum

SUCS celebrated its twenty-fifth birthday in the summer of 2014. We have compiled a site about the society's history. To read about it and contribute your part of the story, visit http://history.sucs.org/.

Election Time!

Hello,

It's that time of year again where the sun isn't out, the birds aren't singing, and it's very wet. What am I talking about? I hear you cry, Elections!

Interested in helping shape Swansea University's Society of the Year? Good then keep on reading! :)

If you have been a student member from at least the 1st of November and are expecting to still be a student in September of 2015 then you can run!

Nominations for positions on the executive committee, which lasts a whole calendar year, will be open on the 15th of November at 00:00, that's this Saturday, and will end on the 28th of November at 23:59. The standard rules apply, to be nominated for a position you must have 2 other student members put your name forward, an email must be sent to vote@sucs.org. Those students must have been members from 2 weeks before nominations open, so the 1st of November in this case.
