Your Hall

Halls Awards shortlists announced!

By NatalieCherry 21 Mar 2024

What are the Halls Awards?

The Halls Awards are a celebration of all the incredible students in our residences.

They celebrate our Residence Life Assistants (who are key point of support and security for students living in residences) and our Residence Life Social Committees (who are students living in residences that plan and run events for their peers). There's also an award open to any student living in Halls, known as the Halls Hero Award. 

The Halls Awards are part of the the LUU Celebrate period. You can learn more about Celebrate here.

The Shortlisting Process

This year we received 285 nominations, which is the highest we have ever received! Thank you so much to everyone who nominated or promoted the nomination process. 

To make a final shortlist for the Awards, each member of the Residence Life team read through all the nominations and shortlist 3-5 individuals or teams based on the number of nominations and the quality of nominations received.

 These individual shortlists are then tallied up to create a final shortlist for each award. This is done because we receive lots of nominations for each award, and so sadly we can’t put forward every single nomination!
