200 Students, 24 Hours of Epic

We're proud to announce the UK's largest collaborative student-run hackathon, HackLondon.

Just like a hack, it started with an idea. And now, KCL Tech Society, UCLU Technology Society, and UCL Entrepreneurs have come together and decided to work on a collaboration bigger than ever before.

Organised and run by three of the UK's fastest-growing and award-winning societies, over 200 students will hack the weekend away, surrounded by free food, swag, and amazing people.
