Video Games & Esports Society

The University of Southampton Video Games & Esports Society, or SVGE for short, aims to provide a community hub for gamers of all kinds at the University of Southampton and partner institutions

We aim to cater to all those interested in video gaming in any capacity - from casual to competitive, to those who simply enjoy watching video game streams

SVGE hosts frequent socials and game nights for members to come and play games togetherWe also have VR headsets available for these game nights, which is all the more reason to come along! For those interested in Esports, the society organises online leagues and LAN tournaments so that members can pit themselves against other gamers both in and out of the university

Members can form into teams to play against other universities in the National University Esports League (NUEL)SVGE also hosting large scale casual and competitive LAN tournaments with rival universities as part of Esports and gaming Varsity events as well as for charity based events. SVGE is also working with companies such as ASUS and HyperX to deliver even bigger and better events for its members

High performance hardware for society events currently being planned throughout the academic year is to be provided by The NUEL in partnership with ASUS ROG and HyperX representatives will be giving a talk in the coming year on what it's like to work in the Esports industry. As SVGE is first and foremost a hub for the gaming community at our university, we strongly encourage you all to share your own gaming and Esports related content - whether that be artwork, articles you've written, videos, or your Twitch channel.
