EC Hacks 2019 Schedule


The hackathon will take place in the Trent University Student Centre.

Trent University, Peterborough

Trent University is known for having one of the most beautiful campuses in Canada. The Otonabee River runs directly through our campus, splitting it into two sections with a bridge connecting the West Bank and the East Bank. At Trent, you can see the Otonabee from virtually every building, including the Trent Student Centre, which is where the hackathon will be hosted. Trent’s campus is 1450 acres and offers over 30km of hiking trails, so students will be able to enjoy the natural beauty of the Kawartha region while visiting Trent University.

Our University is located approximately 15 minutes from downtown Peterborough, which offers live music, theatre, trendy cafes and pubs, and much more. The Peterborough area also has many activities for tourists, including the (free) Riverview Park and Zoo, the Canadian Canoe Museum, and the Warsaw Caves. Trent University is centrally located in Canada, just 90 minutes from Toronto, and is easily accessible to students from all provinces, with bus routes from many major cities travelling directly to Peterborough.
