There are so many positives to being a student: including freebies on your birthday. But one definite negative is that each university (fairly or unfairly) builds up a bit of a reputation. Check out all these horrible things people are saying about your uni on Twitter. Meanies.

Anglia Ruskin University

Although Anglia Ruskin has three campuses — one in Chelmsford, Peterborough and Cambridge — much focus seems to be on the fact that it is looked upon as Cambridge’s inferior little brother. Nevertheless, it isn’t short of suit-wearing pretentious students claiming to be from the prestigious uni.

Cardiff University

It seems that most people think students from Cardiff are originally from Surrey and aren’t fans of the Welsh, which isn’t ideal if you’re going to uni in Wales…

De Montfort University

DMU is pretty well-known for being lit. But the party lifestyle comes with some major setbacks. Students who go here seem to get judged for being a mess — still though, best years of your life and all that.

Leeds Beckett University

Beckett students seem to have picked up a bad rap for not being the smartest lot, but who are really good at sport. That stereotype isn’t helped when their greatest alumni is a sports star.

Loughborough University

This sports focused uni is known for exactly that (and Camilla from Love Island being an alumnus, obviously). However, there is a perk to being a sports uni and that is being able to wear gym clothes all the time and getting away with it.

Newcastle University

Although Newcastle was in the top 25 in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide last year, it seems you guys aren’t so good with your dress sense…

Nottingham Trent University

We all know those Trent students absolutely love Ocean, but when the rest of the world starts to notice maybe it’s time to do something else on a Wednesday.

Sheffield Hallam University

They may be about to get a Michelin-starred chef host a pop-up at their uni, but it seems lots of people are very angry about the left-wing leanings of Hallam students.

Teesside University

People come up with some hilarious excuses to miss uni, but it seems some Teesside students could do with spending a bit more time studying — especially as they can’t spell their own uni’s name correctly.

University of the Arts London

Who would have thought an abundance of tote bags and retro cameras would have you labelled as “pretentious”. Don’t worry it’s just jealousy.

University College London

Perhaps it’s the highly publicised (and successful) rent strike, but UCL students have made a name for themselves as being lefty, liberals. Isn’t it so annoying when people stick up for their rights?

University of Bath

It’s fair to say that the lucky lot at Bath Uni live in one of the most beautiful cities in the UK. Maybe it’s this that makes people think that is chock-a-block with rahs.

Unsurprisingly (as it was named the No.1 hardest partying uni), Birmingham Uni students have a bit of a rep as party animals. But not everyone thinks you’re that cool for your hard drinking.

University of Bristol

With so many great gigs coming to Bristol, it’s unsurprising that students turn to narcotics to boost their nights. But ketamine?

We love a geek at Unifresher so don’t necessarily see these tweets as an insult. But they’re definitely meant as ones…

University of Edinburgh

Hey, Hector, Wigbert and Winnie. We’re sorry but people seem to think you’re posh. I know, I am as shocked as the next Groucho Club member but there you go.

Yup, once again, just because you own more than zero gilets and your brother is called Cinnamon people are calling you posh. I say get the musket down from the gun room and chase them off your land.

University of Glasgow

We don’t see this as an insult but a massive compliment. But lots of people are having a pop at Glasgow students for being Harry Potter maniacs. Some legends are even trying to make muggle quidditch a real sport, you know. Sooooooo, joke’s on the haters.

University of Leeds

Unfortunately for Leeds students, it would seem they’re pretty much universally perceived as being cooler-than-thou, edgy twats. You can check how well you fit into that description with our Leeds quiz, but if you get full marks it’s not looking great for you…

University of Liverpool

Lucky Liverpool students might go to one of the most stunning places around, but there seems to be a bit of a divide in how much people actually want to seem like they’re from there. The general trend seems to be, if you’re not Liverpudlian then pretend that you are, and vice versa. Why anyone wouldn’t be proud to be from Steven Gerrard’s home city is beyond us, to be honest…

University of Manchester

Ah, Manchester. Home to an amazing entertainment scene, lots of drugs and, apparently, lots of posh people trying to dress down to ‘look poor’. It’s a pretty common occurrence at some of the Russell Group unis, but a lot of people seem to have got particularly annoyed at students at the Manc trying their luck…

University of Nottingham

Nottingham is pretty much one of the biggest unis you can go to. Featuring some amazing clubs, it also seems that people who go there are a bit… geographically challenged, shall we say? Many of them seem to be under the impression they’re properly up north, and it’s got people just a little bit angry…

University of Oxford

Oxford might be home to some of the brainiest students the country has to offer, but it seems that while its students excel in some areas, they are somewhat sartorially challenged… People are pointing out how badly Oxford students dress too often for it to be a coincidence, surely?

University of Portsmouth

When you think of Portsmouth, you normally think of family fun on days out at the beach, exploring its boats and docks. But what you should really be thinking of, apparently, is people having sex in quite public university spaces…

University of Salford

Salford is pretty well-loved by almost everyone who goes there, and it’s easy to see why when you consider all the reasons it’s such a great university to attend. That being said, there definitely seems to be a trend of a lot of people who go and live there being a little, well, weird

University of Sheffield

While Sheffield certainly has a whole lot going for it, from its amazing nightlife to its ridiculously cool street art, it has a bit of a rep for people who go there being, well, twats. Just check out the fury of these people at Sheffield-ers for a whole host of different reasons. Get it together, guys.

University of Southampton

Despite not regularly being considered as one of the top universities in the league tables, Southampton has something of a reputation for being home to, for lack of a less 90s terms, nerds. Just check out what people have to say about the students, or why one student chose the uni, for yourself…

University of the West of England

UWE students sure know how to party. But has all of that serotonin being pumped into their brains made them forgetful? As you can see, a lot of people confuse UWE with Uni Of Bristol, but that’s even more surprising when one of the former’s own students does it…

University of Warwick

Despite viewing themselves as being vastly superior to their neighbours Coventry, Warwick students have earned themselves a reputation for being an illogical bunch who are, well, a few screws short of a hardware store…
