Student Societies

Maxwell Society

 Maxwell logo

The Maxwell Society is a student physics society. All Kings students are entitled to be members of the Society for an annual membership fee of £5. This fee goes toward subsidising the student-organised events throughout the year (some of which involve free pizza, so think of it as an investment).
Our main events are:
  • The Maxwell Lecture Series: Lectures on a range of science topics are given by world renowned speakers on their area of research.
  • XCL Lectures and King’s Talks: XCL Lectures are organised in collaboration with other societies/universities. King’s Talks are seminars where PhD students from King’s are given the opportunity to present their research to all staff and students.
  • The Cumberland Lodge Weekend: This residential weekend takes place near the end of February and is organised around a theme. Students spend two nights at Cumberland lodge; a five star hotel in Windsor. There they will attend seminars and participate in a variety of activities. The event is always popular and the cost of the weekend includes all activities, hotel, meals and travel.
  • Social Events / Workshops: A number of smaller events are planned every year. At the start of the year we have free freshers’ welcome events which are open to all including non-members, after that membership will be necessary to attend certain events (e.g. those with free pizza; god I love pizza).

All events will be posted on our website:
