Frequently Asked Questions

What is IC Hack?

IC Hack is Imperial College's Annual Hackathon, back bigger than ever for a new edition.

Where / When is it happening?

IC Hack 17 will be held on Imperial College's campus, on the 4th and 5th of February 2017.

Who can attend?

IC Hack is open to students from any university.

Unfortunately, due to venue and legal constraints, we cannot host under 18s.

How much does it cost to enter?

Absolutely nothing!

Thanks to our wonderful sponsors, IC Hack is completely free for participants.

That includes food to keep you going throughout the weekend.

How big should the teams be?

This is entirely up to you, however we recommend teams of up to 5 people as coordination in larger groups can be time-consuming.

Be aware some of our sponsors limit the number of prizes they offer.

What if I don't have a team?

Don't worry, we'll have a Slack channel for participants to form teams before the event.

You can also form a team when you arrive on the Saturday morning.

Can I help organise IC Hack?

Of course, we're always looking for volunteers to help organise. Volunteers can still participate in the competition.

Volunteers will receive extra goodies in exchange for their time.

Just email us at if you're interested.

Do I need loads of experience to participate?

Not at all. Whether you are a first year student, study a subject unrelated to computing, or this is your first Hackathon, you are still welcome to enter IC Hack.

This is also a great opportunity to learn and gain new experience!
