Are there travel reimbursements or accomodations?
Unfortunately, we are unable to provide travel reimbursements or send buses to nearby cities this year. We apologize for the inconvenience, and hope you can still make it!
I am not an NYU student. Am I allowed to attend HackNYU?
For our NYC and Abu Dhabi sites, anyone is welcome! Faculty, students, staff, industry experts. We are expecting people from a lot of different areas so don’t hesitate to attend HackNYU. For our Shanghai site, non NYU students must be part of a team with at least one NYU student or otherwise they will not be allowed past security.
I am currently a high school student under the age of 18. Can I come to HackNYU?
Yes, we would be happy to have you attend HackNYU! Participants under the age of 18 will be required to have their guardian sign a waiver form. You will be guided through this process while registering through our app!
