Hack@Brown is all about learning. Spend a weekend with us and 500 other students to take a step out of your comfort zone. Use Hack@Brown as an opportunity to experiment with a new platform, API, or that idea that’s always been in the back of your mind!
Whether you’re building your first website, dabbling in Photoshop, or hacking with an Oculus Rift, Hack@Brown is for individuals of all backgrounds and experiences.
This year, our theme is ‘Recess.’ Get ready to experiment, design, and create.

Of course! It is not necessary to have a team prior to coming to Hack@Brown. We’ll have some fun team-forming sessions where you can find an awesome group of people to work with. You’re welcome to have up to four people on a team.
Yes, there will be a standby line if accepted attendees do not show up! The line will open when registration starts (9am) and students will be admitted off the standby line after registration ends (10:30am).
Applicants will be chosen based on a random lottery. Everyone is welcome to apply!
Hack@Brown is completely free, including WiFi, food, drinks, and awesome merch :)
Your student ID, laptop, phone, chargers, any sleeping equipment you might want (we'll be providing air mattresses), and lots of excitement. Keep in mind that Providence winters can get chilly so make sure you pack accordingly! If you’re a minor, you'll need to bring a parental consent form that we’ll email to you.
We will be providing full travel reimbursements to accepted hackers from within the US. Hack@Brown will take place in Sayles Hall at Brown University. You can take Amtrak or the MBTA to Providence Station, a short walk from Brown’s campus.
