Tons of University students are in some sort of romantic relationship throughout their time there. From long-distance to long-term, here are some university relationship statistics that you probably didn’t know!
1) 75% of students are in long-distance relationships!
Juggling social life, deadlines, societies and part-time jobs is difficult. But adding a relationship to the equation makes things that much more stressful and busier! Three-quarter of students are engaged in a long-distance relationship. “As many as 75% of college students report having a long- distance romantic relationship” – study on long-distance relationship Ji-Yeon Lee and M. Carole Pistole.
2) One-fifth of British students meet the love of their life on campus
Research has revealed that 20% of British students, in fact, meet the loves of their life on campus. Just like Will and Kate, we can all find our princes at University! Let’s get scouting…
3) Men are more likely to marry their university ‘true love’ than women
Although we believe every girl wants to find ‘the one’ it seems boys are on that same quest too, and even more shocking – while they are working to get their degree! These university relationship statistics are eye-opening!
4) Some people actually get married while still at University!
Married couple Helena and Joel Haran wedded while both in their first year of university after meeting on a design course – romantic or what?! For most people uni is about having fun, living your younger days free and exploring, but that’s not the case for everyone!
5) 17% of UK students have once made a sex tape
Something you’d usually want to keep under the covers (literally) is now on the uprise for students! Recent research has found just under 20% of UK students have once made a sex tape during their time at uni. Is this a trend?
6) 10% of UK students keep their private parts ‘au naturel’
Bringing it back to the 70s, people are now leading a more hippy, all-natural lifestyle. I mean with all the work we get, the busy (lazy) life we lead, who has time to maintain gardening down there?
