Welcome to the Cambridge University Physics Society!

Founded in 1942, the Cambridge University Physics Society (CUPS) provides the perfect social scene for everyone with an interest in physics.

We organise regular events including lecture series, cocktail evenings, the annual Omega Dinner, and a May Week Garden Party. CUPS presents an unrivaled opportunity to enjoy talks by internationally renowned speakers, which have included Stephen Hawking, Jim Al-Khalili, Roger Penrose and many, many more, on cutting edge physics research into astronomy, biophysics, and everything in between, as well as the history and philosophy of physics.

A drinks reception follows each talk, where there is an opportunity for informal discussion with the speaker.

CUPS is very proud to be sponsored by BP, TPP, MJC², Metaswitch Networks, Hitachi and Jane Street.
