Being a member not only gets you access to all our events but you also enjoy preferential discounts of 15% at selected outdoors shops in Leeds, as well as membership to the Leeds Geological Association and their presentations.

Our weekly socials across Leeds are a great way to meet fellow students from all years and courses as well as post grad students and staff, giving you the opportunity to discuss course related matters or more importantly just have a laugh! Lifetime membership to Rocsoc is £20 but for freshers there is a discount when purchasing a place  on the Cumbria trip alongside membership for the excellent price of £50.

Current members can purchase a place on the Cumbria for £36. Freshers have priority on the trip but tickets will be opened up to everyone after fresher's week. This trip is likely to fill up quickly so book early to avoid disappointment.
