Welcome to the Tardis Project

We provide computing services to hobbyists and small organisations, for any non-profit purposes. Our goal is to promote small-scale computing, and provide a safe space for users to learn practical sysadmin and computing skills.

We provide a variety of services for technical and non-technical people, a list of which you can find here. We are a group of volunteers, and as such all services we provide are best-effort and should not be 'mission critical'. If you're making money off of Tardis, you're doing it wrong.

Tardis is primarily run and maintained by students and alumni of the University of Edinburgh. It was one of the first projects of its kind, being founded in 1987 within the School of Informatics and is now a seperate entity funded by donations.


Meetings are held at 6:30pm at the Auld Hoose.
Everyone is welcome to attend.

Chat with us!

We can currently be found on within the CompSoc Discord and IRC, within the #tardis channel on both platforms.
