Congratulations to Your Winners!

Find out who took away the awards at this year's Students' Union Awards!

Congratulations to Your Winners!

The Students' Union Awards are an annual celebration of student achievements over the course of the academic year. There are a range of award categories that highlight the outstanding contribution made by students, student leaders and student groups to enhance the student experience. The awards are completely led by students and staff at the University of Hertfordshire, giving you the opportunity to highlight anything standout from the 2021-22 calendar.


We were delighted to be joined by nearly 200 students and staff members at the awards ceremony on Thursday 5th May in The Forum. The venue was transformed and guests enjoyed live music, a fantastic performance from our Urban Dance Society, lots of photo opportunities and an exciting awards presentation. We would like to thank everyone that joined us to celebrate the academic year, as well as congratulating all of our amazing finalists for their deserved recognition.


A huge well done to our worthy winners who are listed below! You can see the full results here.
