Level Up! Gaming Society

Update 16/11/2020

We have organised a Gamer Showdown Quiz to take place on the 17th of December. You could win a £50 Amazon gift card! See the event listing for more details.

Update 08/10/2020

We are communicating with the Students' Union about the possibility of arranging smaller meetups limited to six students.

Our very active Signal group chat, currently at fifteen members, continues to run. If you would like to join, please follow this link.

One of our members has also created a Discord server for the society.

Update 15/09/2020

Based on the Students' Union's recent decision to cancel all indoor face-to-face events on campus, we will be unable to hold gaming meetups for the time being.

Level Up! Gaming Society (Chelmsford) is back in 2020, with an all-new committee.

Our weekly soirees allow you to meet new people who are interested in gaming and all things nerd culture. If you like playing video games on any platform, be it PC, console, or mobile; tabletop games, including card and board games; watching anime, or reading manga, then Level Up! is the place for you.

You have the chance to use our selection of tabletop games and consoles, which include the
Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One.

We intend to purchase the PS5 and Xbox Two  Series X soon after release.

We are one of the most active, yet laid-back societies at ARU. We have a blast playing games each week. Gaming with other people can help relieve the stress that often arises from life at university, and presents a ripe opportunity to make new friends, especially if it's your first year!

Please note that as of 15/09/2020, all meetups are cancelled for the time being.

We normally meet up every Thursday at 6PM – 9PM in MAB013.
Socials are held on the last Thursday of every month.

It doesn't matter whether you're a nefarious gaming mastermind or a filthy casual: everyone is welcome, and there's bound to be something you'll enjoy.

Join Level Up! Gaming Society today, for only £5.

A track and trace system is now in place for events held by societies. This means that members must obtain a free ticket through this website prior to attending any of our weekly meetups. Non-members sampling the meetups will need to provide a committee member with contact details upon attending. More information to come soon

The Students' Union will supply antibacterial wipes and hand sanitiser. We ask that you wear a face mask and disinfect controllers after use. Please adhere to ARU's Covid-19 Safe Behaviours Community Pledge at all times.


The society was founded in 2007, and was until 2018 known as the
SASG (Society of Anime, Socialising, and Gaming).

We have organised trips to MCM Comic Con London, EGX Rezzed, and ARU Cambridge’s Nerds Assemble events. In addition, we have livestreamed 24hr Game-a-thons to raise money for the charity Special Effects, who, by providing special equipment, enable people with physical disabilities to enjoy video games.
