Becky Gallagher, student development manager at the students' union, said the Student Employee of the Year awards highlighted how much students contributed to the university and the city outside the lecture theatre.
"These awards recognise students' achievements and are a way of saying 'well done' to those who are juggling their work and study," she said.
International Student Employee of the Year is 33-year-old Christos Marazopoulos, who is studying for a PhD in European politics.
He works as a manager's assistant at the university's Self-Access Languages Centre and also works front-of-house at the Theatre Royal.
On-Campus Student Employee of the Year is 22-year-old psychology student Alex Loughlin, who works as a computer services information assistant, while languages student Felix Slade won the Job Shop category for his work as a clerical assistant with the university's JobLink service.
Tom Browne was named Off-Campus category winner for his work as community development officer for the English Table Tennis Association.
Other nominees were Annie Robinson, Charles Cunniffe, Ieva Indriunaite and Tess Newman.
At Bath Spa University, Lloyd Evans was named as Student Employee of the Year. He works part-time at Corston-based digital design agency Complete Control. The company works with some of the biggest children's brands in the world, producing websites, games and apps.
For the past six months, the second-year creative music technology student has been creating original sounds for use in Complete Control's projects.
Glynn Hayward, managing director at Complete Control, nominated Lloyd.
He said: "Lloyd works quickly and accurately – crucial in a fast-paced commercial studio.
"His interpretation and understanding of the briefs, both verbally and written, is excellent.
"Having someone as talented, passionate and with the cutting-edge, up-to-date commercial awareness he brought to the job has enabled the whole team to do things in our projects which we haven't been able to do before.
"This has had a hugely positive effect on our business in terms of audio production."
Juliet Mather, Job Shop co-ordinator at Bath Spa University, who manages its student employment service, said: "These awards recognise the importance of part-time work experience for the future employability of students, as well as the valuable contribution students can make to key local employers."
