CUBO Awards 2023


CUBO Awards 2023

The CUBO Awards showcase the full range of activity dedicated to delivering excellent student and campus experiences. Bailie Norman Macleod from Glasgow City Council was guest of honour at the 2023 CUBO Awards, which took place in the University of Glasgow's stunning Bute Hall. Awards host JJ Chalmers inspired and entertained us as the nine winners were announced. Awards Chair Jane Donachy praised the exceptional standard of entries in 2023, calling the awards “a fantastic platform to showcase the hard work of university commercial staff.” “University commercial services are an essential part of the student’s life, with most of their personal time being spent in halls, retail outlets, cafes, and canteens. It is a place for them to call home, make lifelong friends and memories,” she said. “The awards are critical to motivate and reward hard-working staff in the commercial areas within the context of the wider university. You cannot underestimate the buzz and encouragement winning an award gives the teams that work tirelessly to improve the student experience.”
