The Campus Stars campaign has been launched to showcase the colleagues still working on campus during the lockdown and highlight the crucial work they do.
Diane is a Housekeeping Assistant at Rutland Hall on University Park and has been working at the University for 10 years.
Diane assists colleagues in cleaning and maintaining public and residential areas of the building in addition to hoovering students’ rooms.
During the pandemic, changes have been made to protect cleaning staff and the residents in accommodation on campus. Hours of work have been staggered to enable social distancing and ensuring cleaning staff are spread across buildings and working different shifts.
Diane volunteered to work through the lockdown and cleans frequently used areas to help lower the risk of infection. She hasn’t minded working through the lockdown and has found that this has helped keep her mind off of the current situation.
Diane has enjoyed seeing people come together during the pandemic, being friendly and helping each other out.
In her spare time, Diane enjoys country classics and watching films.
Diane’s message to the University community is to stay positive and this will be over in no time. We will soon all be back to doing what we do best!
