Student Groups

Get out there

Student groups and clubs are a great way for first and second year students in particular to get out and connect with people across the faculty with common interests. It’s the best way to round out your education, while making some lifelong friends from around the world along the way.

Computing Science Student Society (CSSS)


The CSSS provides plenty of support to get you through your courses and make university fun. This includes end-of-semester socials, ski trips, weekly movies and pizza, UNIX tutorials and job fairs throughout each semester. Students are informed of events and meetings through faculty email lists, as well as posters around the campuses. The CSSS also holds FROSH every year to welcome new Computing Science students, and you can always catch up with fellow Computing Science students in the CSSS common room for conversation, cheap pop, or a game of pool.
