Hall Awards

Loved your time in Halls? 

The Halls Awards are a celebration of the incredible students within the Halls of Residence that have contributed towards the community by providing events, activities opportunities and support to their neighbours.

Hall Exec, Subwardens and entire Halls teams can help make your experience in Halls one to remember, make sure you let them know they’ve made a difference.

This year's Halls Awards took place online on the University of Leeds Residence Life Facebook page, and the Leeds University Union Instagram channel on Tuesday 28 April.
