    I don't think any unis are particularly 'chavvy'.

    Well the only difference between a chav and a non chav is often status, many people I know at uni are essentially chavs except they are slightly smarter and can afford to drink in bars and buy drugs without stealing.

    Least chavvy? Surely Oxford, Cambridge, Warwick, Durham, Keele.

    I do agree though most universities aren't 'chavvy' as such purely because Chav's often don't go to university.
    If you mean the surrounding area to be 'chavvy' then the universities I have listed.

    chavs dont tend to go into higher education mate... looking at the location of the uni rather than the uni itself is probably the best way to go about things.

    Depends whether RAH's annoy you as much as chavs.

    At a guess, I would assume most former polytechnics to have a higher proportion of 'chavs'. I've heard some terrible stories about the students at Kingston, LSBU, and TVU.

    chavs don't tend to have the brainpower to get into uni, most the ones I went to school with are unemployed parents, taliban cannon fodder or lay bricks/tiles/floors

    Lmao! So you don't actually give a **** about what course and career you're following, no, you want a university with no "chavs"!

    Some people seriously need to sort their priorities out, it's shocking.

    Did the original poster indicate at all that this was his primary concern, as opposed to just, say, an additional or minor concern?

    As for the number of chavs locally, campus universities are almost guaranteed to have less. Also, you really can't assume with these things. I attend St Andrews which you would imagine would be entirely chav-free. It still has a fair number of neds though, just not in the student population.

    area -- durham has lots. County durham is highly deprived. I would guess maybe st. andrews is probably as good as you will get

    Well say if his firm was LSE supposing he wanted to do econ, but he had to live on an Islington council estate in second year. Would he take his insurance purely because of this?

    I've never seen any chavs actually acting like chavs in Cambridge. I'm sure they're there but they wouldn't dare actually do anything chavvy since the majority of people around during term time are students.

    there are 'chavs' everywhere in the country, although I suppose there might be a lower proportion if you live in a university in a well-off smaller city or town. I imagine the Royal Agricultural College in Cirencester, for example, is going to be pretty chav-free.

    I've lived in manchester for a year now, and don't really run into many people you might describe as 'chavs' in my day-to-day life. On my second ever visit to oxford - I got punched by a smackhead, so, there you go. you can move somewhere like manchester and have a spiffing time, or go somewhere horrendously middle-class and rural and run into lots of nasty and unfortunate people everyday - really, I don't think this should be a massive consideration.

    However, OP, Oxford is most definatley quite chavvy.
