We are Australia’s largest student hackathon. We bring together a diverse range of students to collaborate and bring innovative ideas to life - fostering the next generation of developers, thinkers, and entrepreneurs.
In a team of 4-6, build your idea (an app, website, device or anything really!), pitch it, and win prizes. We will provide you with the mentors, workshops, and plenty of food and drinks to keep you going!
We believe students are the ones who imagine the future without limitations.#creativity
We create a supportive community that promotes diversity and inclusion.#community
We embrace technology to build amazing ideas through software and hardware.#technology
UNIHACK is open to all university and TAFE students in Australia and New Zealand who are 18 years and older. The only requirement is that you must be an enrolled student on the date that UNIHACK starts. We reserve the right to cancel your ticket if you do not meet this requirement.
Teams must have between four and six people. Teams with less than the minimum will be asked to merge before the competition. We reserve the right to relax this requirement on the day on a team-by-team basis.

Certainly! Hackathons are a great way to learn new skills, and there will be mentors on-site to help you along the way to help you build the best possible idea within 46 hours.
