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 then head to the pub (probably at Teviot). There will also be an opportunity to visit our library.

The series for next semester (September-December 2018) are Merlin, Space Dandy, Battlestar Galactica and The Twilight Zone. Series night will be held from 7-9pm every Thursday, usually in LG.10, David Hume Tower. The first series night this semester (20th of September) will be held in David Hume Tower, Lecture Theater A.

Film/Games nights are roughly every second Saturday from 7pm at a member’s flat and don’t follow a strict schedule, showing pretty much whatever people bring along and want to watch. The first film night of the semester will be on the 22nd of September.

How do I join?

Membership costs £3 for students and £6 for non-students, which can be given to any member of the committee. You don’t have to be a member to come along for a week or two, though you will have to join if you want to take anything out of the library.
