A little bit about us...

We are the Faculty of Biological Sciences society - one of the biggest and best societies in LUU! With over 850 members in 2015/16, we cater for both undergraduates and postgraduates across all courses within FBS. We run a wide range of social and educational events throughout the year, on our own and in collaboration with other societies, meaning we provide something for everyone. We also have four intramural teams (football, netball, hockey & rugby) for our sportier members. Memberships include some fantastic discounts from our sponsors/partners and can be bought either for one year or as a lifetime membership. Why not sign up today and be a part of the best society in LUU?


What can FoBSoc do for you?


FoBSoc socials are a great way to meet and socialise with people on your course, held frequently with a range of events to suit all!  We have some great events ready and lined up for semester 1 which can be seen on the social calendar, including an Otley Run ‘Through the Ages’, The Snowcial and many more!  Be sure to follow us on all our social media, and join our Facebook groups so you won’t miss out on the latest updates about these events

We also have plenty more planned for semester two!

This year, we'll be running a trip abroad to Amsterdam in February, after the stress of January exams! Our booking page will go live 9th October. Be ready as places will sell out fast!
