We have calculated the $\bmod \text {-}2$ cohomology rings of all the groups of 32 elements. This paper describes the methods of calculation; the computer routines used can be adapted to assist in the calculation of the modular cohomology rings of other finite groups. We also describe the results of the calculations; the data we have collected provide a substantial increase in the supply of completed calculations in group cohomology, and so we take this opportunity to compare known results and open conjectures.
