What is UB ACM?

Our mission is to empower student peers and help them find their path in computer science.

We do so by running a variety of student-led initiatives and events, available for free to any University at Buffalo students.

Our Events

All of our weekly meetings, events, and hackathons are optional, so pick and choose your favorites to come. We'd love for you to come to all of them though!


Our workshops are informative introductory workshops ran mostly by upperclassmen with expertise in the topics. We host workshops that cover a wide range of technologies used by professionals in industry or academia. We've covered Python, JavaScript, Docker, web development, and much more.

Tech Talks

We bring university professors and industry speakers to our school and present interesting technologies. We've hosted professional speakers from local and major tech companies like Cisco, Thimble, and Microsoft to present our our school.

Hack Nights co-hosted by ACV Auctions

Build awesome projects, do homework, or just hang out with your fellow peers at hack night! Our Hack Nights event series are recurring Saturday events at University at Buffalo where students gather and work together in Davis 101. The event is sponsored by reputable companies from Buffalo and major tech hub. Learn more about Hack Nights here

Social Events

We organize our own social events like board game nights, bowling night, and barbecue socials to let students network. We also help companies like Bloomberg organize for company-sponosred social events with students.

Our Community


We moved away from newsletters to Slack to encourage more communication and discussion between students outside of our events. Our Slack workspace has registered over 600 verified (current and past) University at Buffalo students.

Away Hackathons

In addition to UB Hacking and Hack Nights, our club also organizes members to attend hackathons together near our school. Attending hackathons are a a great way for students to learn new technologies and show some pride for our school.

For the first time in the 2018 season, we placed University at Buffalo on the MLH rank standings!
