20 Struggles Every University of Hull Student Has Faced At Least Once
If you studied at the University of Hull, there’s a good chance you faced these struggles at one point or another.
1. Forever trying to convince people that Hull is actually much more interesting than everyone seems to believe.
2. And that the uni isn’t half bad, either.
3. Being asked if you have a Geordie Accent yet.
No. Hull is in Yorkshire.
4. Trying to act casual on the walk down Cott Road on Union fancy dress nights.
5. Or always getting stuck in the queue for Welly on a Thursday, no matter how early you leave.

6. Regularly missing out on a ticket to Shinobi.
How do they sell out so fast?
7. And that feeling of dread when you see how long the queue for pizza is in the Union.
Why is there only one member of staff making 100,000 pizzas?
8. So you then have to argue about whether to get San Remo’s or Pizza Hut instead.
9. The sheer amount of building works everywhere.
10. And the fact that the bus to The Lawns is never on time.
11. Not that there’s ever any space on it anyway, so you always have to wait for the next one.
12. Having too many options for coffee on Newland Avenue.
13. Or going to a club in town not on a student night.
Drinks aren’t £1? Really?
14. Receiving emails about eBridge being down. Again.
It’s cool; wasn’t planning on doing work anyway.
15. Needing to mentally prepare yourself for the stress of finding a seat in the library.
16. And dealing with the librarian who won’t let you in with your coffee.
17. Getting a library fine on one of the books with a £1 an hour late fee.
WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?
18. Or discovering that 82 don’t have any taxis so you have to call 35.
19. Feeling extremely defensive if anyone from another uni tries to say anything bad about Hull.
Because it’s only OK when you do it.
