    Warwick: I didn't think it would be in Coventry
    Royal Holloway: A three year dry spell for straight girls who thought it was in London
    SOAS: It's only in London to make it easier to get to the demonstrations
    Kingston: That one club, tho
    Brunel: I'm Asian and from West London and I didn't get into Cambridge so my parents won't let me leave home.
    Herts: On current trajectory we'll be in the Russell Group....around the time this kilo of uranium has decayed to 500g.
    Leeds Beckett: but we're good at sports
    Durham: We're collegiate as well, you know.
    Exeter: It's really diverse here. There's this girl on our course from Grammar school.
    St Andrews: My father owns large parts of South Dorset
    LSE: My father owns large parts of South America

    Imperial: Entire student body is socially inept asian nerds

    Imperial: Chinese people.
    As an Imperial student (a Caucasian one though), I can confirm this is very true. 65% of the Maths department came from China, and there are two Chinese student societies, both of which are enormous.

    Oh, and everyone, this is hilarious and very relevant to this thread:

    Is there a stereotype for the University Of Nottingham?
    Baked beans and tiny beds.

    I went to Nottingham overnight and this is what I remember.

    I'm 6'4", so I was put right off applying for accommodation if I could help it, and hence, I'm living at home. But trust me, I'm not just saying that because I'm tall; the bed was small even by my standards! I hope for your sake that you're under 5 foot! :P

    And well, there are options other than baked beans. But they do seem to love 'em there.
    The bacon there is delicious, though, so do have plenty of that!

    but my accommodation was for a 3/4 bed and I've looked at pictures and it seems like a decent size whereas the normal rooms do have the tiny beds so i shouldn't have that issue ha

    Lucky bugger.
    At least I spent only one night in said bed, albeit a restless one.

    If I end up there I'll be sure to gently tease my fellow hall mates with their tiny beds
