About BCU Gaming

Welcome to BCU Gaming, cheers for stopping by!

Make sure you join our Discord, our main method of communicating news, events and hanging out:

BCU Gaming is for you if...
1. You have a passion for videogames and online gaming culture!
2. You have a particular fascination with Esports (new or old!)
3. You're a bit anxious with University at large, and want to cosy up to a group of gamers!
4. You want to participate in NSE, NUEL and other university Esports.
5. You want to meet your uni friends for life!


What does BCU Gaming focus on?

As leaders of BCU Gaming, we have pledged our time and resources to fulfill these four values:

  • Keeping BCU Gaming a friendly place for casual and competitive gamers alike. 
  • Working to improve the health of Esport representation at the University.
  • Making sure that everybody understands that they're welcome in our soc, regardless of background.
  • Offering our members the most we possibly can to make sure your membership and support do not go unnoticed.

We offer a space for our members to play games, in addition to our Discord server, a platform for members to socialise and play together! Whether you enjoy FPSs, MMOs, MOBAs or BRs, on console or not, we can guarantee you'll enjoy your time here! (Although a lot of us do play on PC!) These games can often be competitive by nature. However, don't let that stop you from joining! We appeal to all players across all levels of skill, casual or not!

Our membership is £3 for the academic year. This will grant you access to our member-only events and allow you to represent our University (in Esports) in a unified manner with the rest of your teammates!
