Student Community

Student Community

Our Computer Science majors organize and lead their own student groups. You’ll be able to participate in friendly, creative, and collaborative pursuits at every level, from coding to competitions.



University of Richmond Association for Computing Machinery (UR ACM) is the main computing club on campus and our focus is to build a strong community of people who are interested in computing. No prior knowledge is needed, we just like collecting people who like tech. We host social events, knowledge building events, and even career building events usually in the form of talks, workshops, competitions, and game nights. We want to make our CS department feel like home. For more information, visit
