Sheffield Computer Science Society



ShefJam is a GameJam we run two or three times per year. It offers you a chance to come along and team up with people (or go solo) and create a game from scratch.

Social Events

We run a number of social events throughout the year. From bar crawls and pub meetups to bowling evenings and film nights.


CodeToast (noun): a group of events designed to test your nerve (and programming skill) against one another; the opposite of GameJam.


Extra-curricular teaching from expert students. Linux basics, Git version control, web development and other programming seminars.


Personal one-on-one mentors who you can contact as well as regular group meetups for general help when you're stuck. Disclaimer: not for specific assignment help.

Summer Ball

We ran our first society ball in 2016. Given it's huge success, we hope to make this a CompSci tradition for years to come.

Capture The Flag

A chance to practice offensive security. Gain access to a tightly controlled server using a variety of penetration testing techniques.


Annual General Meetings (AGMs) are held every year around April/May time. If you wish to get involved with the running of the society, apply for a position beforehand.
