Awards & Recognition

Our annual Union Awards event is an opportunity to celebrate student volunteers, activities, projects and events from the academic year. 

Various awards are up for grabs from a variety of categories, from Club of the Year, Staff Member of the Year, Best Student Performance at an Event, Course Rep of the Year and much more!

Students and staff can nominate themselves and others during the nomination period, and winners are chosen by a selection panel. 

The Union Awards is one of our highlight events of the year filled with celebration, performances from clubs and societies, music and the chance to glam up if you like!

It usually takes place in May at the Farnham campus' Glasshouse venue.

We have partnered up with Weydon School (Weydon Lane, Farnham, Surrey, GU9 8UG) to offer UCA students state of the art sports facilities and the opportunity to get the very best out of their club memberships. Facilities include two astroturf all-weather pitches which are home to our men’s and women’s Football and Tag Rugby clubs and indoor sprung wooden floor Sports Hall; used by our Basketball, Netball and Volleyball clubs. It is wheelchair accessible and there are changing rooms available.
