Uni drives me mad too, I think its because its often used in this context:

"i can't wait till uni do you knoh what a mean, i am gonna 'av a right laff, am studyin' party and alchol studies combined with sex educaton' man"

My dad always calls it college which I also find annoying because to me college was where I did my A levels.
Oh Ian,did you have to...
well now i hate any word that can be pronounced with an eeeeeeeeeeeeeh at the end of it turn the teleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeh on mayt.... :mad:

That's their accent though, it's not the same as shortening a word. People with Black Country and Brummie accents also say bus "buzz".

There's no way around it. When I caught the bus last year, I tried about every term going:

Q. "A return ticket please to Essex University" < sounds posh, long and wrong

Q. "A return ticket please to Essex" < "What part of Essex" they ask?

Q. "A return ticket please to Essex Uni" < this upsets people like zazy

Q "A return ticket please to that large educational institution" < taking the piss

These days, I just say Colchester (which is the town next to it).

I nearly always have a bus pass but if I am not sure if the bus goes past Salford University I say

"do you go Salford Crescent" it sounds a bit less snobby than "do you go to Salford University" as some bus drivers hate students.

I just said "to campus" or "to university" and they knew what I meant.

The word "uni" is kind of annoying, but we just have to live with it, cuz people like to say that for short form, and they are lazy to type the whole word.

You clearly have little worries when you let something so small like this 'irritate' you. Jeez, as someone already said, there will be lots of people calling it UNI. So ur gonna get really 'irritated'!
