Whether you want to know a bishop from a knight or you’re working on the Sicilian, the UT Dallas Chess Club is the place to improve your game.

Students, faculty and staff of all skill levels gather for recreational chess Fridays at 2:30 – 5:30 p.m.

Please note that there is a difference between the internationally competitive chess team and the recreational student chess society. The student chess society provides hobbyist players with a leisurely game of chess in a social environment. For more information about meetings and activities, please contact Craig Hilby, president of the UT Dallas Student Chess Society.
