We're hosting the third installment of our Student Hackathon in the University of Sheffield, open to students across the country! We provide the WiFi, power, and food while teams of hackers create something new and exciting.


This year, we're moving into a new home to cope with our new capacity. 38 Mappin Street is a newly reopened building nearby the Diamond with a much bigger capacity.


Team of 1-4 people. Must be at university, or have graduated since 14th October 2016.
