Global Game Jam @ ETH Zürich

Logo of Global Game Jam Zurich 26th-28th Jan '24
    • Welcome back to the Global Game Jam in Zürich! After a three-year pause, we're returning with a new location at ETH Zürich. Everyone aged 18 and above is welcome to join. You can join with an existing team or form one on site. We encourage forming teams of at most 5 members.

      This event is made possible by the generous contribution of GIANTS Software, and it is organized by the Game Technology Center at ETH Zürich in collaboration with Dock18 and the Swiss Game Hub.

      Tickets are limited! Entrance is CHF 20 per person. This includes 48 hours access to the site, free coffee and a free breakfast on Saturday and Sunday. Buy your ticket now at:

      The jam will take place at the StuZ hall in the CAB building of ETH Zürich (CAB F21). The address is Universitätstrasse 6, which is a 1 minute walk from the ETH/Universitätsspital tram stop (Trams 6, 9, and 10, Night buses N6 and N10). There is also bike parking available next to the building. Several local take-aways/restaurants and a Coop are within walking distance. HB is reachable within 5 minutes by tram or 10 minutes on foot.

      There will also be a bar on site where you can purchase refreshments (non-alcoholic and alcoholic) at a fair price.
