PLACEHack challenges student teams to tackle a place-based problem in College Park—an underused space, a dangerous intersection, post-COVID dining spaces—and disrupt its course. At PLACEHack, unconventional ideas, teamwork and pizza converge to inspire great spaces@UMD.

This year’s challenge: Reconceive a parking lot at UMD’s future Aviation Village into a campus asset (that might actually be built!)

Teams and individual registration is NOW OPEN! Registration Deadline: February 6, 2023

PLACEHack is open to all UMD undergraduates and teams must be interdisciplinary: build your own team or get matched by PLACEHack!
