17 Things That Make You Regret Studying In a City

So much to do, but no money to do any of it.

1. Everything always seems so far away.

Half your time is just spent walking – or commuting – between different parts of campus.

2. And it takes longer to get everywhere because you’re at the mercy of public transport.

Four minutes for the next bus? Not acceptable.

3. Other people commuting are the worst. 

They’re everywhere and are just as tired and hungry as you.

4. And there’s always a random group of tourists walking slowly in front of you when you’re in a hurry.

You don’t need any more photos of that ugly building okay.

5. It’s impossible to find somewhere cheap to live that is also close to campus.

6. Not to mention food and drink at a decent price. 

£7.50 G&Ts are not okay.

7. Your friends from home who went to campus unis are always talking about how convenient their lives are.

“I woke up at 8:50, had a shower and still made it to my 9am lecture!”

8. Your university probably doesn’t have any sports fields that aren’t also open to the public.

No middle-aged Brian, you can’t walk your dog while I train for cross-country.

9. Your campus buildings are most likely made of concrete. 

Brutalism > beauty.

10. Your university is not a sacred place for students. 

There’s 50 events a day, and members of the public can just WALK RIGHT IN. For free.

11. The fees are probably way higher. 

And you don’t really feel it’s justified by all that “research” they claim they’re doing.

12. Your club nights include half the population of the city.

You thought the student nights were crap, but there is truly nothing worse than being hit on by someone who’s probably married 😷😷

13. You spend ages queuing for everything. 

Quick coffee before class? Those 37 other people had the same idea.

14. There’s no unity between students on different campuses.

And you thought rivalries between unis were bad. We’ve taken it to the scientific method.

15. You’re always broke.

Cities are just too expensive.

16. Everyone always wants to crash at your place.

They probably don’t even care about seeing you, but you have floor space in the city which is ideal for them.

17. But you keep reminding yourself that you’re in a hub of culture and diversity and that you wouldn’t want it any other way.
