The UT Dallas Chess Team has won national and international titles and regularly represents the University in the Pan American Intercollegiate Championship, the National Collegiate Chess League team championship and the Final Four of Chess. The team competes internationally in annual Internet matches with the University of Belgrade, and has traveled to Beijing and to Havana for exhibition matches.

Chess is also a part of recreation and education at the University. The UT Dallas Chess Program offers the open-access chess club and chess in education initiatives, including online instruction for academic credit and summer camps.
