Sponsor guide

HackCU is thrilled to have you as a sponsor this year at HackCU 8! We appreciate all of your support for this event and it couldn’t happen without you. We have created this short logistics guide to explain the outline and location of the event. Please feel free to email [email protected] or [email protected] with any additional questions.


Date

March 5th and March 6th, 2022

Time

March 5th: 8:00 AM - March 6th: 4:00 PM.

Where

Jennie Smoly Caruthers Biotech Building, 3415 Colorado Ave

Check-in

Check-in will be at the South entrance closest to Colorado Ave. Please feel free to get a badge and lanyard, and either Kyle or Kayla will meet you here. Please feel free to arrive at 7:30 AM on Saturday to set up your table for the event. Hackers will begin checking in at 8 AM.

Parking :car:

The JSCBB lot #543 is located on the northwest corner of the building (refer to the map below). Parking in the JSCBB lots is not available for free (unless you have an existing permit for any of those lots).

Please make other arrangements to get to JSBB on East Campus for 2 days. Carpool with friends and team members if you can!

If necessary, the HackCU team is providing parking permits for those specific lots, and you can sign up for one here (we have a limited quantity, so permits are given on a first come first serve basis!)

You must get a permit via https://cuboulder.pmreserve.com with the permit code HACK8402. This permit code allows you to get the pass for free. You must do this for both days. Make sure to print out the pass and put it on your vehicle while parking!
