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 subjects ranging from the cutting edge to the purely historical, philosophical, astronomical, or biological.

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

Keep up to date with our events via:

Our YouTube channel is brand new, and features talks from Michaelmas 2014 onwards, when we started recording them.

If you have already graduated and wish to remain in touch with CUPS, you can sign up to our low-volume Alumni mailing list.

CUPS is very proud to be sponsored by Studypool, a leading website in online homework help, Metaswitch Networks, BP, MJC², Hitachi, BAE Systems Applied Intelligence, ECM Selection, and our very own University of Cambridge Cavendish Laboratory.
