LauzHack is a student-run hackathon at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Hackathons are creativity marathons, where attendees work in teams to create something exciting in a short time.

Come and join 250 like-minded students hacking together during a weekend to make something amazing!

Please keep in mind our rules.

Can I participate?

You must be at least 18 years old and a student, including apprentices and PhD students, or have graduated in the past 24 months.

How much does it cost?

Thanks to our sponsors, attendance is free.

Where is it?

LauzHack will take place in EPFL’s Lausanne campus, bordering Lake Geneva. You can find directions here.

What should I bring?

Your laptop and charger, as well as toiletries. Please bring a valid ID for admission.

Where will I sleep?

We have limited space in a separate sleeping area, as well as showers. Please bring a sleeping bag if you’d like to use it. If you would like to use it on the Friday-Saturday night, please contact us.

Will my travel be reimbursed?

We will reimburse up to 150 CHF if you come from outside of Switzerland, and up to 75 CHF if you come from within Switzerland outside of the Lausanne area, in cash upon presentation of receipts at the end of the event.
This includes the return trip, and a hotel stay if you cannot travel back on Sunday.

What if I don't have a team?

You don’t need one to apply! Part of the fun of a hackathon is meeting new people.
There will be time at the beginning of the event to socialize and form teams.

What about intellectual property?

We do not claim any rights on any of your intellectual property whatsoever.
Everything you create, at LauzHack or not, belongs to you.
