The largest university hackathon in North Texas
Join us for 24 hours as we build apps, hardware and more at the beautiful UT Dallas campus. Whether you're a seasoned hackathon goer or just getting started, we'd love to see you there.
Have a specific idea in mind? At HackUTD 19, you can compete in challenges for specific categories of projects. Best of all, if your project answers multiple challenges, you will be judged for all of them!

Have questions about HackUTD? Read on.
Who, When, & Where?
HackUTD'19 will run for 24 hours on February 23rd & 24th at the University of Texas at Dallas, open to all college students. We allow students in high school to participate only if they are 18+ by the time of the hackathon.
How do I sign up?
Apply for HackUTD'19 here! You will get notified of your application status in early January.
How's parking & travel reimbursement?
HackUTD is currently offering travel reimbursements to a limited number of participants. Travel reimbursement amount will be determined based on travel distance and will be distributed during the event.
What kind of project can I work on?
Whatever you'd like. Software, hardware, design, music, art, animation — take your pick. In addition to traditional prizing for top projects, we'll be awarding prizes to best projects in design, arts, and more.
Teams should be groups of up to 4 students. You can also work alone, but we encourage collaborating with the other great minds at HackUTD.
Can I work on something I've already started?
Not if you'd like to be judged. Previously developed libraries & using open-source code are all clear, however.
I haven't been to a hackthon before...?
Awesome! We love newcomers as much as veterans. Hit us up if you've got any questions not answered here.
What should I bring?
Whatever you need to create. Hardware, computers, machines, and whatever else. Don't forget hygiene. We'll be providing some hardware first-come, first-served.
What shouldn't I bring?
A bad attitude. Come with an open mind & be ready to build.
I'm not a college student. Can I participate?
We're open to high school students 18 years of age or older. In the industry? If you're interested in being a mentor, drop us a line.
