Now in its fifth year, the CUBO Awards recognise the achievements of those working in the higher education sector. The awards are open to all UK higher education institutions and to businesses associated with CUBO’s areas of activity.
The categories for 2016 are:

The ACUHO-I Professional award, new for 2016, is a jointly sponsored award by CUBO and US affiliate ACUHO-I (Association of College and University Housing Officers, International.) It is a development opportunity for those working in student housing with fewer than five years experience. (See CUBO website for more details.)
There is also a Lifetime Achievement Award, decided by a select panel and not open to nomination.
Full details of the criteria for each category and how to enter can be found on the awards section of the CUBO website www.cubo.org.uk/cubo_awards.php. The deadline for submissions is Friday 26 February 2016. Entries should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
‘The CUBO Awards have helped to raise the profile of both winners and entrants among key stakeholders, including Vice-Chancellors and university governing bodies. As the event grows and expands it is contributing to the growth of CUBO as it seeks to extend its networking and knowledge exchange across all UK Higher Education Institutions.’ Peter Church, pioneer of the CUBO Awards.
The CUBO Awards are organised in association with University Business.
The 2016 awards ceremony will be hosted at the University of Sussex on 16 June 2016. For more information about CUBO, please visit https://www.cubo.org.uk/
