Halls Awards Nominations are open!
The Halls Awards are back!
Every year our students do an amazing job and dedicate their time and energy to creating a fun, welcoming and inclusive environment for their fellow residents. Residence Life Assistants and Social Committees work extremely hard to encourage community and engagement within their halls, and to help to make students feel welcome throughout the year. The Halls Awards are a celebration of all the remarkable students living in halls of residence who are making a difference in their halls communities, and this year we’re giving out more awards than ever before!

Nominations can be submitted by anyone living in halls, so make sure you have your say! After the nominations are collected, members of the central Residence Life team shortlist three to four individuals or teams per award category. A team of four impartial judges, including two senior members of Residential Services and two senior LUU staff members, then get to work on judging the awards. All nominees are invited to attend the awards and enjoy the celebrations, so keep an eye on your inbox to check if you are one of the lucky nominees selected!
