save the date, university of suffolk students' union student and staff awards, 19th of May 2023

The Students’ Union Awards is an annual celebration of the efforts and success of all our staff and students.  Each year, students and staff  submit nominations in different categories. A panel reads all the nominations and presents a shortlist and a winner in each category. The SU Awards celebrate those members of the University community who go above and beyond to make student life that little bit easier, and this year we're pleased to announce that there will be even more awards up for grabs than ever before!

Due to the financial pressures we have all felt during the cost of living crisis, your SU felt that the money usually put into throwing a Summer Ball would be better spent making more smaller events throughout the year that students can access free of charge.


It also didn't feel right charging students high ticket prices, when the feedback we've had this year has been focussed on students having to cut back on essentials in order to continue their studies, so instead we are celebrating the end of the year in style with the awards ceremony, which has been sponsored by local businesses, to ensure that every student who is shortlisted and their plus one can attend for free.
