Sciffy is the nickname of the University of Edinburgh Science Fiction and Fantasy Society, a student society dedicated to science fiction and fantasy in all their forms – books, films, TV shows, everything.

What does Sciffy do?

During the semester, on Thursdays we have our series night. We watch episodes of various TV shows for a couple of hours and hang out. There will also be an opportunity to visit our library.

The series for this semester (September 2022) are: Stargate-SG1, Warehouse 13, Our Flag Means Death, Owl House and Over the Garden Wall.

Film/Games nights are usually Saturday from 7pm and don’t follow a strict schedule, showing pretty much whatever people bring along and want to watch. Dates and Locations are posted on our social medias and mailing list.

We also have many other events on during the semester! The best way to stay up to date is to join our social medias, or our mailing list which one of our committee members can sign you up to at our series nights, or you can email the committee.

How do I join?

Membership costs £3 for students and £5 for non-students (EUSA associate membership needed), which can be bought online via EUSA. You don’t have to be a member to come along for a week or two or a few more than that, though you will have to join if you want to take anything out of the library.
