The University of Washington Association for Computing Machinery is a UW RSO dedicated to building community in the CSE department.
We are the largest student-led organization at the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering and an official student chapter of the international Association for Computing Machinery. As the world’s largest computing society, ACM strengthens the profession's collective voice through strong leadership, promotion of the highest standards, professional development, and recognition of technical excellence. Our chapter aims to bring the motivation and spirit of this organization to our school campus through career and academic support, mentorship, and community-building initiatives.
We collaborate with the UW Chapter of ACM-W, which focuses on the support and advocacy of women at UW CSE.

The UW Chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery is an RSO at the University of Washington aimed at improving the student experience at the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering. We host various events for CSE students, which help connect students with peers, faculty, staff, and industry, and provide them with the resources and skills they need to succeed.
All current UW CSE undergraduate students are welcome to join!
You can attend most of our events! During an in-person quarter, we require paid membership for ACM’s large departmental socials only (Fall Fest, Winter Ball, and Spring Barbecue).
During a virtual quarter, we do not require paid membership for any of our events - all students are welcome to attend our events for free.
We are always in search for volunteers for our three major annual events (Fall Fest, Winter Ball, Spring Barbecue). If you're looking to get even more involved with the planning process of our events, you can apply to become an Executive Officer during spring quarter, or Associate Officer during fall quarter. Keep an eye out on our social media for these opportunities!
