about us

We are GreatUniHack, an annual 24-hour student-oriented hackathon organised by the University of Manchester tech society, HackSoc in collaboration with CSSoc.

Established in 2014, we have brought together students from 88 universities across Europe to work and develop innovative ideas in a competitive environment. This year's edition aims to introduce a new generation of developers with great potential for improving the technology industry and community.

No need to worry! Part of the fun of a hackathon is meeting new people. We will have time at the beginning of the event for everyone to meet and form teams.
