Welcome to the official ARU Esports Society page!

Are you new to the scene or just happen to have a passing interest? We happily welcome all newcomers and veterans of esports!

Make sure to join our Discord server where almost all of our online correspondence is held and follow our Facebook page!

If you wish to attend any in-person events or join a team roster then you must purchase a membership for FREE either on this page or in-person at the front desk in the Student's Union.

Our aim is to create a mixed community of competitive players, casters and fans of esports to form competitive teams for online and local tournaments and to watch & analyse professional games together.


Regularly competing in online and local tournaments

As a society, we currently compete in NSE and NUEL tournaments and have several official esports teams for Apex LegendsCS:GO, Fighting Games, League of Legends, Overwatch, Rainbow Six: Siege, Rocket League and VALORANT. We are interested in competing in other games as well so feel free to bring any new ideas to our attention!

Casual Gaming Events

Games will often host casual events such as 5v5s, 2v2s and sometimes with a twist. They are open to anyone and it is great way to meet new people from the society. These events will be announced as appropriate so we advise you to follow us on Twitter and Instagram or join the society Discord server so you never miss an event!

Viewing Parties

Whenever there is enough interest, we organise viewing parties for major tournaments where members can come together to watch events such as LoL Worlds, EVO, CS:GO Majors etc, free food & drinks are provided (for in-person events). Similar to our events, they will be announced on our Twitter, Instagram and Discord server.

Have an idea?

We are always open to trying out new games or setting up teams to mix things up a bit, if you're interested in starting a team or a scene for a game that we don't cover, feel free to get in touch with us either in-person at a meet-up or through our discord with any ideas you may have.


You can check out our current teams and rosters on our NSE and NUEL pages:
