We contrast the experimental signatures of low energy supersymmetry and the model of Universal Extra Dimensions and discuss various methods for their discrimination at hadron colliders. We study the discovery reach of the Tevatron and the LHC for level 2 Kaluza-Klein modes, which would indicate the presence of extra dimensions. We find that with 100 fb −1 of data the LHC will be able to discover the γ2 and Z2 KK modes as separate resonances if their masses are below 2 TeV. We also investigate… Expand
