    Hi guys.
    I'm planning to go to uni next year but obviously from the title I'm really short. What are some of the key struggles I will have at uni and how much of an impact will they have? Feel free to ask any questions.

    Ah yes. I'd forgotten that lecturers refuse to talk to you if you're under 5'8.... :rolleyes:




    You're at uni to learn. Your height has no impact on that at all.

    If you're this self conscious about it, nothing anybody says here will be able to help you.

    Odd person might take the p1ss with a few jibes but people in university should be more sensitive than compared to people in general.

    What about them?

    Why do you think life will be any different to how it is for you now? Uni isn't a magical new world. It's not Narnia.

    Because I don't live with tall people 😂 I know what they're like in public but was more on about actually living etc. With them

    You make it sound like you think they're a different species, or some kind of alien.

    Stop projecting. You're going to be living with fellow students. End of.

    Just gonna put it out there, i'm 5'3 18 too. been self conscious always, i'll give u a tip. buy yourself some boots..obviously so that they go up your leg. inside them, fold some socks and tape them together and just stand on them when wearing your shoots. it adds 4 inches for me plus the 2 inches boots normally add so everyone thinks im 5'9. and to anyone thinking that this is impractical or lying to others. if girls can wear heels and be comfortable. tm, a stable pile of folded socks in your boots is more than comfy and the lying part..its only uni, you're not gonna meet these people after 2 years.. the people who will need to know your real height, will know.
