What's DurHack?

DurHack is a 24-hour hackathon aiming to push the boundaries of technology to new limits. As one of the first hybrid student hackathons in the UK, students will be joining us both in person and online.

We provide you with...


Can I attend?

Yes! Anybody who is over 18 and a current registered student at Durham University (or has graduated in the last 12 months) can attend.

DurHack aims to be very welcoming and beginner-friendly, so there are a few things that don't matter:

It doesn't matter what degree you study.
It doesn't matter whether you've programmed before.
It doesn't matter if you haven't got a team.

All that matters is that you have a passion for technology and for learning something new!
