It's the season of bloody t-shirts, contact lenses and face paint. And while you may be considering your own Halloween outfits for this year, have you ever thought what your uni's outfit would be? Well, thinking is tiring so we've thought about it for you!


Bristol – Brexit

Notorious for setting their own trends, and besides, what is scarier than the daunting prospects of Brexit right now?

Cambridge – Punny

Cambridge guys and gals are known for their intelligence – so only the best puns will do. Bee-yonce? A smart cookie? Breadwinner? Just like in university challenge, they are guaranteed to win. Every. Single. Time.

Cardiff – Dracula

Dracula is known for being nutty, just like these wild students.

Durham – Anything over £20

The only university students with money from mummy and daddy to spend on an intricate costume.

Exeter – Harley Quinn

You can’t get any more #basic than Harley Quinn.

Hull – Witch

Much like the uni, it’s not your first choice, but a suitable last resort.

Kent – Superheroes

In true Kent fashion, even their Halloween costume is an attempt to remain sophisticated. But it’s a bit boring, isn’t it?

Leeds – Devil

These guys party devilishly hard.

Liverpool – Scream mask

Like with many Liverpudlians, this costume is best in small doses.

Loughborough – Ordinary clothes

Loughborough students won’t be dressing up this year. They’re simply too busy thinking about their next ‘big game’.

London – Mummy

Unfortunately, all London students have no money left over from their rent for a cool costume. So a bit of loo roll will have to do.

Manchester – Cat

Cheeky, with a touch of basic.

Manchester Met – Skeleton

We all know Manchester Met students have way too much time on their hands, so what better choice of costume? Hours are spent practising and perfecting the perfect skeleton make-up.

Nottingham – Pennywise the Clown

‘Shottingham’ living up to its badass reputation.

Oxford – Angel

An old classic. With so much time spent studying, they have no chance of devising an intricate costume.

Sheffield – Pumpkin costume

You can’t get any more adorable than wearing a Pumpkin for fancy dress. And you can’t get any cuter than a Sheffield student.

Southampton – Scarecrow

Just like when you first arrived in freshers thinking it was going to be a ‘bit shit’, the medium amount of effort for this outfit choice equally exceeds your expectations.

Warwick – A ghost

What’s more boring than chucking a sheet over your head and cutting two slits for your eyes?
