The University of Hull was announced as the winner of the Industry/Business Collaboration category at the Educate North Awards for our Principal Partnership with Hull UK City of Culture 2017.

We’re really proud of how great our collaboration with the arts industry has been, helping to make sure that Hull City of Culture 2017 was a hugely successful and inclusive experience. We worked closely with the Hull 2017 team to help shape the incredible series of events which took place over the year and we also welcomed over 88,000 visitors to our campus (though not all at once!). The partnership also created masses of exciting opportunities for students, staff and alumni to both gain valuable experience and demonstrate their own expertise by taking pivotal roles both on and off campus.

The University’s cultural spaces, which brought so many of these inspiring events to life, will continue to be enjoyed by the community and wider region as well as our own students for years to come.
