Basically, as someone with an extremely powerful brain, I find it annoying.

And its invariably highly talkative short girls in their early twenties with MacBooks, holding a costa that come up to you and start nattering about "uni".

Its University, my friends.

Not "Cambridge Uni" SMH

No not really - "university" is good.

Its the short form of a word which should have a bit of class and the short form turns it into something annoying lol

Yes.


The word "uni" is an Australianism that entered British English courtesy of Neighbours

Stop using abbreviations where the first result on google for it (with meaning added) is the definition from urban dictionary and would be used by someone sending a message on their phone in Costa.

Also Cambridge dictionary (as well as some other places including google itself) gives a definition of uni so it is correct.
