Welcome to GeogSoc, Scotland's largest Geographical Society of over 200 current members and 1800+ alumni members. Formed in 1935, we are one of the university's oldest societies and have broadened to a huge range of activities over our 85 years, from charity work to sports teams to academic talks!


Our aim is to enhance the Geosciences community of Edinburgh University by strengthening friendships of all years and to provide bespoke opportunities to you during your time at Edinburgh. We host an abundance of fun and inspiring events and socials such as Academic Families; the Autumn Ceilidh, careers events, and the unforgettable Annual Ball! GeogSoc is run by fun-loving members from all years who have a passion for everything Geography related and who care about improving upon the experience of the students at the university. 


We have three wonderful sports teams for you to get involved in! To join one of the teams please make sure that you have purchased your annual GeogSoc membership above, and the relevant sports team membership which can be found under Our Products!
