Welcome to PhysSoc!

Exciting news: PhysSoc is getting a new look for next year! We’re holding a logo competition over the next few weeks, so get your pens and pencils out and get creative – there is a £100 prize up for grabs! Full details here.


Hello and welcome to the Oxford University Physics Society (or PhysSoc for short)! This year, we have plenty of events on, including talks, socials and much more. This isn’t a society just for physicists; this is a society for anyone who is interested in physics, its applications, and physics-related topics. To find out more, have a look at our Events or subscribe to our mailing list.

PhysSoc is a wonderful society − a place to gather to discuss and learn about the Universe. We wish you the best with your studies at Oxford and we hope to see you at one of our events soon!

The Committee

About the Society

The Oxford University Physics Society (PhysSoc) is a student society that exists to promote and encourage an interest in Physics in and around Oxford University. We host talks most weeks during termtime in the Physics Department (normally in the Lindemann lecture theatre) , often by leading experts and also hold social events which are a great opportunity to get to know others with an interest in all things Physics. Sign up to our mailing list by emailing physsoc@physics.ox.ac.uk to receive the latest news about our events.

Life membership costs just £10 which gives free entry to all of our talks and discounted entry to social events.

What kind of talks do we host?

We’ve had talks by Sir Roger Penrose, Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell, and President of the CERN Council Agnieszka Zalewska, to name but a few. Check out our online termcard for the talks organised this term. If you have any suggestions for speakers, feel free to drop us an email.
