SLUGSoc LAN Events
We've run over 70 LAN events here at SLUGS. We provide power and super-fast gigabit internet to over 60 seats, and give our players a great time playing a variety of games! LAN favourites include Quiplash 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, League of Legends and Left 4 Dead 2, plus plenty more.
If you've never been to a LAN before, look forward to a fun weekend of gaming! Bring your desktop/laptop/console and get ready to enjoy your favourite games with friends.
LANs are normally hosted at the Ridge building on Ranmoor Student Village, a great Sheffield location just past Broomhill and central to most student accommodation. Attendees get a metre of desk to set up their gear, along with internet access and two plug sockets. Other LAN benefits include our 24/7 tuck shop for midnight munchies, a non-stop LAN playlist for tunes, quiet rooms for a nap, a pub quiz, and a Saturday night pizza order. Come and join us!
What's a LAN?
A LAN party is a gathering of people with computers or compatible game consoles, where a local area network (LAN) connection is established...for the purpose of playing multiplayer video games together.
Games aren't all, though - you can expect a great playlist, a quiz, and the undying LAN tradition of Pizza Time. Perhaps we'll screen a film too?
As with any event at scale, we do have a Code of Conduct. We'll try and keep it short and sweet, but it's important that you click to expand each rule and read them in full.
