The AUDE Awards 2023

The AUDE Awards are an annual highlight for the association, giving us a chance to focus on some of the fantastic estates and facilities teams, and their projects, that contribute so significantly to the success of our universities, year-round. AUDE are proud to announce the ninth year of the AUDE awards. The awards highlight and celebrate the exceptional achievements of estates and facilities professionals in the higher education sector. This year our awards are sponsored by leading construction company Gleeds, and we are very grateful for their support.

AUDE Awards: Why get involved?

We asked former winners of the AUDE Awards why they decided to get involved. Here’s what they told us.

There’s real pride involved in winning an AUDE Award. It reminds us that we are part of the wider university estates community and that we can share ideas together that benefit us all. It’s great to be able to showcase projects big and small in this way. The Awards are judged by peers and that makes the recognition really meaningful. There aren’t many opportunities to celebrate achievements in this kind of way and so it is fantastic to be able to formally recognise the teams’ achievement and thank them in this way.

The University of Warwick

It has been great for our FM Team to be recognised for all their hard work in making a difference to our customers and the wider community including potential future students. Often we don't shout out about all the excellent stuff that we do, so when the AUDE Awards criteria fits our projects we think it is a great place to share our achievements. Winning an AUDE Award gives us a chance to celebrate success.

Edge Hill University

Winning and AUDE Award is recognition of the collective hard work that the team normally ‘just do’, regardless of circumstance and whatever challenge is thrown at them. To be appreciated externally helps to reinforce that the team has gone that one step further and that this is recognised. Entering for the AUDE Awards is a great way of testing your progress and ambition against others in the sector. Ultimately that helps us all by demonstrating what the standard is, so that we can all improve together. The Awards give you permission to present openly the talent and hard work that goes into delivering a first-class estates and facilities service.
