Bristol Students' Union wins top award at Houses of Parliament reception
The University of Bristol Students’ Union has collected an award at the Houses of Parliament.
UBU received a bronze award from the Student Union Evaluation Initiative (SUEI) in recognition of ‘transformational change’ within the organisation between 2010 and 2012.
The assessment panel for SUEI, a national programme in partnership with NUS, gave the award in light of UBU’s improved services and activities for students.
The parliamentary reception celebrated the impact of students' unions, students and universities across the country as part of Student Volunteering Week and the SUEI Awards 2013.
This week's delicious £5 5 O'CLOCKTAIL is a refreshing Tequila Sunrise. Available everyday from our Bar for only £5 between 5pm & 7pm.

UBU elected officers and members of staff were invited to the event at the Houses of Parliament, alongside Nick Hurd MP, the Minister for Civil Society, and Professor Judith Squires, who will take up the role of Pro Vice-Chancellor for Education at the University of Bristol this summer.
Samantha Budd, the Bristol University Students’ Union (UBU) chief executive, said: “It was a real privilege to receive our award at the Houses of Parliament. The significance of democracy as a core value for UBU made the venue really special and it also reflects the reputation that SUEI has gained as a means of measuring the quality of a good Students' Union.”
