Welcome to the Oxford University Quiz Society website.
OUQS exists to stimulate an interest in general knowledge and quizzing of all types. We run a number of events each year, such as pub quizzes and buzzer quizzes like the annual Inter-Collegiate Quiz. The Society regularly sends teams to inter-university quiz tournaments around the UK, and sometimes in the USA as well. OUQS is also happy to help those in need of question writing, quiz hosting and buzzer system hire.
If there's anything you'd like to see on here, or think we're missing, please get in touch!
Latest News & Updates:
Despite the current unfortunate circumstances student buzzer quizzing in the UK continues to go from strength to strength, and OUQS is at the heart of this. We have secured a stall at the virtual Freshers' Fair and are eagerly looking forward to welcoming new students interested in quiz.
