Frequently asked questions

Where can I get food?

We serve food at designated hours in the South East part of the upper-level, outer concourse. Refer to the schedule for more information about the times. If you want food from elsewhere, you can order Postmates or Uber Eats to the Ackerman turnaround, 325 Westwood Pl, but you'd have to go there to pick it up. You can Yelp some good spots to eat around campus!

How do I get hardware?

Come to the hardware tables in the lower-level hacking area. You can also go to WearHacks and click on LA Hacks.

I'm stuck! I need a mentor!

Call a mentor using HelpQ.

I don't have a team yet!

If you missed the team formation section that was held at 10:30pm in the outer concourse, you can always use the #team-formation channel on the Slack.

How do I join the Slack?

Join here. All the organizers are named lah-(firstname) - So ask us on there if you have other questions!
