... because it's such a good idea (created by kirby1024 ) : ausunigeeks.

Many unis spawn a group of like-minded people who hang around together, with interests including science fiction/fantasy, gaming, SCA, role-playing, juggling, computers, writing, reading, and generally being wierd. These groups (based on the three I know of :-) ) tend to occupy some neglected corner of the uni and make it their home - hence Second Floor, The Rubble, and Korner.
fire_fly, Sydney Uni has something similar, right ? Anyone in other places know of similar groups ? How about in the UK, do similar groups form here ?

Oh, yes they do.

This is the message board for the group I hang around with - based in Sheffield, a descendent of the old Uni of Sheffield Trek Society:

Sydney Uni was once famous (in certain circles at least) for groups such the Tolkien Society and the wargame group in the early and mid seventies. The latter was located in something called the blue room if memory serves me correctly. I assume such groups continue to flourish there.

Yep. Sutekh, which occupies the glass room. Although it's hardly a "neglected corner" of the Uni.
