Royal Hackaway is Royal Holloway's annual hackathon. Open to university students from the UK and around the world, in this two-day hackathon you'll work as a team to build a project. You'll pick up new skills, try out new tech, and meet new people. This is our third time running this event, and we're excited to create a more inclusive and rewarding event for all.
