University of Cambridge Pakistan Society

Welcome to Paksoc

We're a social platform for Pakistani (and plenty of non-Pakistani) students to meet up and have an amazing time.

Cambridge University Pakistan Society is a dynamic, fun and engaging society, designed to appeal to anyone with an interest in Pakistan and its culture, however big or small! We host a variety of events from regular social events and academic talks to a magnificent charity ball in February. We also aim to provide an opportunity to learn about Pakistani culture, and to promote Pakistani identity in Cambridge.

We’d love for you all to get involved with the society, so please have a browse around this website, check out our Facebook page, and come along to our next event! Oh, and please feel free to contact us if you need anything at all.

Our Annual Charity Ball

The biggest event in the PakSoc calendar. Saturday 11th February 2017.

The biggest event of the PakSoc calendar is our Annual Charity Ball (in support of The Citizens Foundation), being held in 2017 on Saturday 11th February at the Guildhall, Cambridge. The elegant, enchanting evening will bring your senses to life with a spectacular 5-course waitered meal, and a captivating collection of entertainment and spectacular sights at what promises to be the best PakSoc Ball the world has ever seen.

We’ll be releasing more information about the eagerly-anticipated event throughout the coming year, so watch this space!

I attended the Cambridge PakSoc Ball last year and it was definitely one of the most well organised and enjoyable paksoc events I’ve attended. I would recommend it to anyone who likes great food, entertainment and a beautiful venue. (Nida, UCL Paksoc President 2012-13)

A rupee for your thoughts?

PakSoc holds a special place in the hearts of a lot of people. We asked some of our members about the role it's played in their lives.

I've been involved with PakSoc since the first week of University. I've had a fantastic time, made great friends, and can honestly say that PakSoc has been the best part of University life.

I was on the PakSoc committee for all my years at Cambridge, and now that I've defected to UCL for clinical school, it's the one thing in Cambridge that I miss the most.

Paksoc still holds a special place in my heart, even after having left Cambridge. It is most definitely the source of my fondest memories from my time at Cambridge.
