What is hackSheffield?

It's a hackathon in the University of Sheffield, open to students around the world! We provide WiFi, power, and food while you and your team create something new.

What's a hackathon?

A hackathon is a programming marathon, where teams of 2-4 put their ideas together to create something exciting in only 24 hours. It gives teams of hackers a chance to turn their ideas into reality.

Can I attend?

To attend as a hacker, you need to be a university student or have left university in the past year. Apologies, but we are unable to accept under 18s.

Is it free?

It's free to attend, but you'll need to reserve a ticket ahead of time. We'll post on social media and our mailing list when tickets are available.

What about sleep?

If you want to sleep, we have rooms available where you can catch some Zs.

What do I need to bring?

Your ticket, toiletries and a laptop with its charger. That's about it!

Can you provide travel reimbursement?

We currently do not have a travel reimbursement scheme. If you are a company interested in sponsoring a reimbursement scheme, please get in touch.

Code of conduct?

We follow the MLH Code of Conduct.


hackSheffield is organised by hackSheffield Society, a Sheffield Students’ Union society.

The society was founded in January 2016. Since then, we've held many events and look forward to organising further events within the university. We'd love to welcome you to our society, and maybe you could get involved!
