Campus Stars: Juliana Brown


August 12th, 2020

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.

Juliana is a Senior Building Attendant in Life Science, Pharmacy and Psychology and has worked at the University for 12 years.

Juliana supervises the cleaning team within the building, whilst also carrying out building security, reporting maintenance issues, testing fire alarms and acting as a point of contact for visitors, staff and students.

Since lockdown, Juliana has assisted with cleaning at Cripps Health Centre in the mornings to ensure the building is fully operational if needed to support the NHS during the pandemic. This is in addition to continuing to work in her usual role which currently involves assisting contractors in Life Sciences, Pharmacy and Psychology building whilst they carry out building survey and upgrade the fire alarm system. Juliana has found it difficult to adjust to the reduced number of staff on campus and the emptiness of the corridors that are usually bustling with staff and students.

During her time off, Juliana has enjoyed video calls with her family and friends. She has also enjoyed watching TikTok videos created by her grandchildren.

Juliana’s favourite thing about working for the University of Nottingham is the hustle and bustle of university life. She looks forward to seeing the University that way again following lockdown.

Juliana’s message to the University community is to stay strong and that this will soon pass.
