CompSoc is the University of Edinburgh's main student computing society and operates primary from the School of Informatics.

Tardis has had quite strong connections with CompSoc over the years and a number of former CompSoc committee members and students have ended up in Tardis. Although Tardis and CompSoc both have a lot in common, being the two big computing groups on campus, they serve different and complimentary roles in the University community.


Tardis provides CompSoc with a number of services. Tardis currently hosts the CompSoc server 'Jupiter' who's primary role is to host VMs that run the CompSoc website & Minecraft server (Europa)

Mailing List

CompSoc previously had a mailing list on the Lists Service but it appears to be deactivated at the moment.

Interwiki Link

CompSoc have their own wiki which covers some more student oriented material.

You can link to articles in the Wiki by prefixing a link with compsoc. For example:
