Who can attend?

You must be a current student at a university or college on the date of the event to attend. All disciplines are welcome!

Is there an attendance fee?

Nope! There is no entry fee. CSH Hacks will provide you with plenty of food, snacks, swag, and prizes throughout the 24 hours.

What if I don't have a team?

If you don't have a team yet, don't fret! There will be a team-formation session immediately after the kick-off. A team can have a maximum of 4 people.

Will there be travel reimbursements?

Unfortunately this year we can’t provide travel reimbursements. We know that this is an issue for people travelling from outside of Rochester, but we encourage you to try and come to the event if it is possible. For those of you in the Western New York area, we plan to provide buses from Buffalo, Syracuse and Ithaca. Given interest, we may add more buses to other universities or cities.

What should I bring with me?

A valid University ID, a laptop, any hardware you might want to hack on, and everything you'll need to stay overnight. (Don't forget chargers!)


To be announced. Stay tuned for updates.
