ACM UMN

The ACM room is back for the Fall 2021 semester! Take a peek at the events we're hosting and stay in touch.

Who are we?

We are the Association for Computing Machinery, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities student chapter. We work to promote knowledge and greater interest in the science, design, development, language, management, and applications of modern computing on the Twin Cities campus and around the Twin Cities area.

Our constitution, bylaws, and rules are available online.

What do we do?

We provide a place on campus in Keller Hall, room 2-204, where anyone can come to meet and discuss modern computing. Our room is open to any and all, and we welcome computer science, computer engineering, and electrical engineering students, as well as anyone with an interest in computing or programming. Dropping by our room is the easiest way to get involved beyond attending events. More about this space.

We provide computing resources to our members. These include website hosting, gigabit Internet connection, high powered servers, IRC and Discord servers, and other miscellaneous utilities. Members are granted access to our server argo, a dual Xeon E5-2430 system with 128GB RAM and over 5TB of available disk.

We also host several events throughout the year, including MinneHack (the largest Hackathon in the Twin Cities), the UMN Software Design Competition, Capture-the-Flag cybersecurity events, and the semesterly Keller LAN Party.

Who can be a member?

Membership is open to anyone and everyone who's interested in computing. Enrollment at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, or even as a student in general is not required. Learn more about what membership gets you. The easiest way to get involved to drop by our room (Keller 2-204,) especially during our open houses 16:00-18:00 on Tuesdays. Yearly membership is free for those that have attended two events (open houses and officer meetings count!) Simply walk in the door and we'll be keeping track.

Alternatively, for people that are unable to attend events, we offer membership for a fee. To pay your membership fee, use one of the following e-payment links and email your receipt to acm@umn.edu: semester ($5) or year ($10).
