The society for all things tech-related; gaming, programming, robotics, hacking and more!

  • Do you run linux as your main or secondary PC operating system?
  • Do you like playing video games or with electronics?
  • Can you count in binary?

If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, then CompSoc is for you!

CompSoc is NUI Galway’s Computer and Networking Society. We host events for everything computing related from how to setup your own blog to System Administration and Programming Tutorials. We also host a number of services on our Society run servers for our members. CompSoc is the oldest computer-related society in Ireland, while many Alumni believe it was much earlier, was formally established in 1977 during the days that the University was known as UCG.

Examples of events include:

  • Linux server tutorials
  • Arduino hacking, robotics and programming tutorials
  • LAN gaming sessions
  • Technology conferences and nationwide-nerd meetups


  • An ssh server account with 5GB of server space
  • An,, and an email address
