10 stereotypes you'll meet at uni

Heading off to uni you'll probably meet loads of people you won't be familiar with. Even if you think you know these type of people, be prepared for them all to be around you all the damn time! Here are the 10 people you'll definitely meet at uni, trust me. You can do this.

1. The Hipster

Probably has a beard, probably too cool for you. Overly-opinionated and only eats pulled pork from a slate or a wooden board and drinks beer if it's 'craft'. Only drinks coffee if it's desconstructed. Starbucks, who?

2. The Cryer

Usually, this person is homesick and needs a shoulder to cry on and someone to reassure them that everything's OK. Be the good person and give 'em a hug. If they're talking about leaving, make it your person mission to stop them because they'll love it once they're in the swing of things!

3. The Fashion Girl

She's probably a blogger and she'll probably get about 10 parcels a week from random PR companies and spend most of the time photographing her feet or latest beauty love. The most common thing she'll hear is either "did you get that for free?" or "I'm going to start a blog too!". Yeah, you won't and she probably doesn't like you unless you volunteer to take her outfit photos. Soz. ‌

Fashion Girl, is that you? Psst, you can save a boosted 30% at Dissh for a limited time only, grab this OWeek offer before it's gone! I couldn't resist picking a few pieces that I love myself, because, I am the Fashion Girl too, I feel your pain.

4. The Makeup Girl

She contours, she bakes (the concealer and powder kind, not the cake kind) and she spends her entire student loan online at Sephora. This is the girl in your apartment that's filled her shelves with her acrylic makeup storage and religiously washes her brushes on a Sunday night. Don't interrupt her selfie taking, you have been warned. ‌

5. The Hungry Person

Basically hungry because they can't even cook instant noodles, pasta or a simple microwave meal. They'll need some serious help to stay alive. But, if you cook for them they might buy the ingredients which is a win-win situation for you if you're a keen cook!

6. Your New Best Friend

Really annoying, super keen but has a heart of gold and just wants to be liked. Give them a try and they'll probably calm down a little bit once they get used to the whole first year deal!

7. The Mature Student

They probably won't be living with you but there might be one in your classes. Hopefully they won't try and be 'cool' and 'on your level', hopefully they'll just try and be themselves and fit in that way. But they could be this guy...

8. The Rich Kid

Stick close to this guy if you want sick holidays and free drinks. They might actually be a nice guy/gal though, so try to look past the moneybags in their eyes.

9. The Party-Animal

The one that wants to treat every week like Fresher's week. Their diet equals Maccas and cereal. That's not a witty album name, that's a recipe for a failed degree.

10. The Mum

There will always be one person who kind of adopts the rest of the flat, they are forever called 'the sensible one'. Even if they don't mean to be, it totally happens. If this is you, draw the line at ironing other people's clothes. Making tea is fine, ironing 6 lads shirts before their night out? Not cool.
