Welcome to the University of Edinburgh Atheist, Humanist, and Secularist Society! We are a home for the university's non-religious population, whether they are atheists, agnostics, humanists, secularists, or anything in between or otherwise. We seek to engage with a variety of students and other societies, including faith groups, and all are welcome at our events.


Together, we engage with big ideas, champion reason, and aspire to live truly meaningful lives.


We value critical thinking over dogma, conversation over conflict, and virtue over virtue-signalling. Those are ideals truly worth standing for.


We meet often to discuss interesting topics, give and listen to talks, and we strive to build a strong community. Some laughing may occur in the process. We will invite guest speakers, go on excursions, arrange movie nights and pub quizzes and much more. If you want to engage with truly important ideas and make friendships that will last a lifetime, the Atheist, Humanist, and Secularist Society is the one for you.


Make sure to join the conversation at our Facebook and Twitter, and please get in contact through our social media or email if you have any questions.


Thank you for reading and, once again, welcome!
