The Union Ball is one of the most prestigious award ceremonies that we have at Surrey.
The ball includes a dinner, an awards ceremony, and of course a dance, as we come together to celebrate the achievements of societies and individuals!
There are an array of different awards, which cover all aspects of university life, and the full description of each award can be found here.
How are nominees shortlisted and winners chosen?
Each Zone within the Union is allocated awards in which the Zone Committee Members with the support of the Vice President are tasked with analysing and coming up with the shortlist. Below are the awards and which Zone decides the outcome:
Signatory of the Year
Society of the Year
Member of the Year
Most Improved Society
Best New Society
Alan Sutherland Award
All Colours Ball Awards
Course Rep of the Year
President & Vice Chancellor
The Sabbatical Team
Following the shortlisting, the Sabbatical Team meet and analyse the Union Ball shortlisted awards and decide winners. If any of the sabbatical team have any conflicts of interest with individuals or societies, they are not included in the decision of the relevant award
