Campus Stars: Ray Eddyshaw

June 1st, 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.

Ray is a Building Attendant at Jubilee Campus and has worked at the University for nine years.

Ray looks after the whole of Jubilee Campus, which includes 22 buildings.

During the pandemic, Ray is busy carrying out maintenance such as water flushing, fire alarm tests and refuge phone testing to ensure that everything works ready for when staff and students return to the campus. Ray also turns on computers for those working remotely, opens areas for contractors and acts as a point of contact for those working from home.

Ray is enjoying being kept busy whilst he helps around the University and enjoys chatting at distance with students that remain on campus and members of the public passing through.

During the lockdown, Ray has been spending time with his family and has been busy trying to entertain his two sons!

Ray’s message to the University community is to stay safe and he looks forward to seeing everyone on campus again soon!

Congratulations Ray – absolutely deserved. You are such a star! You bring our building to life and help in any which way you can!
You are one of things we are all missing most while we work from home. Take care of yourself, stay safe, and we look forward to being back nagging you about our blinds soon xxxx

It’s not a surprise to see Ray listed as a Campus Star. Ray has always done his very best to help us at CELE (School of Education), often responding to emergencies and last minute requests. Our teaching wouldn’t be possible without Ray and his team.
