Sign-ups for this year's AUHack has closed.

What is AUHack?

AUHack is Denmarks’s largest hackathon for students. Over a 36-hour period from March 18th to 20th, students interested in IT will meet, form groups and work intensively to create awesome prototypes and concepts. Whether you like to concept develop, design or code, if you’re into IT – this is for you.

Ideate, build, play, hack, share, learn and have fun! The goal for the weekend is to come up with new ideas, play with technology and make cool stuff. It is not about creating finished products, but an opportunity to share your ideas with different people, build inspiring hacks, learn from our mentors and just have fun.

Our goal with the hackathon is to bring creative minds and different skill sets together. We want to see you form new ideas and to see what having fun and playing with technology results in through your presentations and demos at the end of the hackathon. So if you feel up for the challenge and are interested in IT, bring your skill set to the event and put it in play working on something cool.

Free food

36 hours of hacking

I cannot code. Can I attend anyway?

Sure, you should definitely attend! Whether you have written lots of code or just have a creative soul, this hackathon needs you! In true hackathon spirit all students are very friendly and willing to help each other out.

Seriously, is it free?!

Yes, we’re not kidding you. Thanks to our sponsors we will provide free food, swag, snacks, drinks and a place for you to sleep at the hackathon. Plus, there will be mentors, workshops and judges only for the sake of YOU.

What can I win?

You have the fantastic opportunity to learn new stuff, try out your skills and make new friends. Isn't that just great? Everyone will be a winner!... Okay, we will also have some awesome prizes.


Can I build on my hack before the event?

No. That's not fair. You can come up with ideas, but not build them. You are of course allowed to use libraries, frameworks and templates for your hacks.

What do people usually build?

AUHack has been home to a wide variety of projects, from amazing hardware projects to the coolest VR Games and the most useful services and apps.

What hardware will be available to hack on?

We always have a wide spectrum of hardware available, provided by our sponsors and happily administered by our knowledgeable wizards. A detailed list will be available as we get closer to the event!


Do I need to have a team?

No. You are more than welcome to make a team before the hackathon, but loads of people come without a team. We will help everyone find a team Friday night. We recommend groups of 4-5 persons, but anything is allowed.

How can I apply?

Sign-ups for this year's AUHack has closed.

Can I attend?

You might think that a hackathon is for programmers only, but that’s not true. Technology and code is one thing – creative minds, bright insights and strategic eyes are another. So, as long as you are a student above 18 years old, you are more than welcome – no matter what university or study program you attend. Actually, we believe that the more different people we are, the better.


What do I need to bring?

Laptop, cellphone and chargers aswell as a sleeping bag, pillow, toiletries, clothes and a well-rested and open mind. If you want to hack on hardware, you might need to bring it yourself. What you won't need to bring is a pre-determined team, an idea for a hack, nor food and drinks. Also, there is absolutely no reason to bring bad mood.

When is it?

AUHack will start in the evening of Friday at 15:30 and end Sunday at 16:00. All work eligible for prizes must be worked on and completed during this period of time and can't be prepared from home. Throughout the hackathon inspiring events, talks and mentoring sessions will be hosted. For a more detailed schedule see below.

Can I sleep at the AUHack venue?

There will be rooms to sleep in. You will have to bring your own bedroll, sleeping bag and pillows though.

How do I get there?

Please take a look at, where we have written down some options for you.
The address is:
Finlandsgade 21, 8200 Aarhus N

Will there be parking available?
