Now in the second year, we have added a brand new category for you to nominate in...
the TUCO Outstanding Achievement Award

Also, listening to feedback from our members we have narrowed the scope for the Sustainability Award, concentrating ont he very hot topic of coffee cup waste.

The TUCO Awards will be presented at the gala dinner at this year's TUCO Conference in July.

They recognise the hard work of all individuals, no matter if they’re in their first role or in a management position. The awards celebrate the initiatives and bright ideas of our members, including new openings, innovative campaigns, and sustainability. There is also the TUCO Member of the Year, which shines a light on one university or college.
