Campus Stars: Mark Pycroft

July 2nd, 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.

Mark is a Senior Security Officer based on University Park campus and has worked at the University for 13 years.

Mark’s role has continued as normal during the pandemic as some students remain on campus and so the usual security service is still provided. Mark also provides access to outside contractors and colleagues within the Estates team who are using this time to carry out essential maintenance and outstanding jobs. On occasion, this has led to between 30 and 40 access jobs per day followed by the securing of buildings once jobs have been completed. The Security team have also been faced with members of the public enjoying the beautiful campuses and improperly disposing of disposable barbecues resulting in bin fires.

Security has supported the NHS who are utilising the Medical School by providing vital card access to relevant buildings and free parking.

During his spare time, Mark has been watching documentaries and recently enjoyed O.J.: Made in America. Mark is missing sport at the moment as he would usually be attending Derby County football games and playing golf.

Mark’s favourite thing about working at the University of Nottingham is the beautiful campuses.

Mark’s message to the University community is to stay strong, stay safe and keep smiling!
