Just wondered, since people say that Uni is a much more open place than Sixth Form/College. A lot of gay/lesbian people 'come out' at Uni as it's a much more accepting place etc.
So I was wondering, since it's a much more open place than Sixth Form/Secondary School/College, how common are same sex relationships at Uni? Of course, I know it's not going to be common in the sense that every other couple you see holding hands are a same sex couple, but would you say there are more or less gay/lesbian relationships than you expected at Uni?

It's hard to know exactly, as gay couples aren't generally as openly affectionate as straight ones. I'd say that what with active LGBT societies and a generally more liberal ethos than in the real world, uni is an accepting place to be gay, as well as being somewhere where people often get together lots (so much socializing and free time), so gay people who might have been reluctant to explore their sexuality at home probably feel a bit more comfortable doing so.
Just my thoughts!

Being queer myself, half my friends are gay or bi so I'd say there are a lot of same sex relationships. Not that I've managed to find one.
