University of Georgia ยท February 3-5, 2023

Create your own adventure.

UGAHacks is an annual hackathon organized by fellow students at the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia. Hackathons are all about groups of dedicated people coming together to create something amazing in an epic 48-hour programming sleepover.

Even though submitting a project is the main objective, that's not all there is. We'll have mentors, free food, video game competitions, workshops and more. There's even a workshop at the event for anyone that still needs to find some teammates!

So come and join us to build the future!



UGA Hacks 8 will be an IN-PERSON event where participants can attend only in-person at MLC Building on UGA Campus!

Nothing! The entire event and its amazing perks are free for all participants, including meals and snacks to keep you powered throughout the weekend, as well as workshops to help you get started and sharpen your hacking skills.

Currently we do not provide travel reimbursements but this can change in the future!

No. All UGAHacks projects must begin at the hackathon. You are not permitted to begin a hackathon project before this event. Feel free to bring ideas, but no code!

All university students! We welcome all undergraduates and graduate students of all skill levels to attend. Professionals and other guests are welcome to attend as mentors or volunteers.

Don't sweat it! You're free to join any existing team or form a new one when you get there. We'll also provide ample opportunities for hackers to meet each other and brainstorm some amazing ideas.

UGAHacks will be following the MLH Code of Conduct. By participating in UGAHacks, you are agreeing to follow the Code of Conduct throughout the duration of the event. Check out the MLH Code of Conduct

There is no hard limit, but we recommend teams be at most 4 people, as we only have prizes for 4 people per team.

Reach out to and we'll be happy to answer it!
