Society Awards

The Union Awards evening is one of the most exciting nights of the year! It takes lots of work and commitment to run a successful society. The Union Awards is our way of recognising all the effort societies put in across the year to support their members and provide them with opportunities they wouldn’t have otherwise. Thank you for improving the lives of students year on year. 

If you would like to nominate a society for an award, or several societies for different awards, please complete our nomination form. Please scroll down for further details.

Make a Nomination

If you would like to nominate a society for an award, or several societies for different awards, please complete our nomination form.

Nominations will close at 4pm on Wednesday 8th March. Shortlisted nominees will be contacted soon after, inviting them to attend the announcement of the winners at the Students' Union Awards ceremony on Monday 24th April at the Four Pillars Hotel, Abingdon Road, Oxford.

The awards will be made based on what students say about the societies in the nomination, not on the number of nominations that a society has received. 

You can make nominations in as many categories as you like. You do not need to make a nomination in every category. You may nominate a society for several awards, or you may nominate a different society for each award. You may only submit the nomination form once, and you need to be logged in to your University email account.
