About UofTHacks

For the 9th consecutive year, Canada’s first student-run hackathon, UofTHacks, will bring together 500 innovators, technology enthusiasts, designers, and entrepreneurs in a thrilling competition where they will embark on a journey to build unique and impactful projects.

What is a hackathon?

An event, typically lasting several days, in which a large number of people meet to engage in collaborative computer programming. We look past this traditional definition of a hackathon and take it to new heights. UofTHacks is the University of Toronto's annual hackathon. At UofTHacks, we bring people together to make new friends, learn new things, and bring new ideas to life.


We're currently in the process of finding sponsors to make UofTHacks 2022 even greater than before. If you are interested in sponsoring for UofTHacks IX, please email us at
