Celebrating our Campus Stars #WeAreUoN

June 1st, 2020

The majority of our University community is working or studying remotely during the coronavirus pandemic, but the University needs key colleagues on campus to keep essential services running and to keep the members of our community that remain on campus safe and supported. 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.

It is important to celebrate our campus stars – our cleaners, security staff, researchers, catering staff, technicians and halls managers – and give the University community the opportunity to say thanks.

These colleagues have been asked to share the essential work they are doing to support staff and students, and talk about the ways their roles have changed since lockdown. Their stories can be viewed in the gallery below.

Join us in celebrating our Campus Stars online using the hashtag #WeAreUoN.

Also a handful of the Grounds Team have been going into the campuses all through lockdown to keep the place clean, tidy and beautiful for when we return. They are stars and deserve recognition for putting themselves at risk all through this period.
