Oxbridge Students' Nudity, Vomiting And Drunken Bad Behaviour Revealed In Telegraph's FOI

Posted: Updated:

Oxbridge students are in the spotlight again after reports charting their bad behaviour, which included naked parades, restaurant food fights and public urinating, were made public.

A comment on one report even noted: "It apparently never occurred to students that there was something fundamentally wrong with their behaviour."

The dossiers cataloguing the Oxford and Cambridge students' bad behaviour were obtained by the Daily Telegraph under the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act.

Hundreds of incidents are listed in the documents, most notably Cambridge's Sidney Sussex College boat club captain being paraded naked around Sainsbury's supermarket.

Another memorable incident involves the same college's rugby team chanting abuse and hurling curry at customers in an Indian restaurant.

Notorious dining society the Myrmidons, compiled of students from Oxford's Merton College, saw its summer party banned after "alcohol-induced bad behaviour".

Although not listed in the dossier, another Oxford student dining club - Bullingdons - has long been infamous for its members' antics. Boris Johnson and George Osborne have previously been associated with the club during their times at the university.

Other incidents made public on Monday by the FOI included students urinating in public, abusing ambulance staff and collapsing in their own vomit at society dinners.

A spokesperson for Oxford University said: "Oxford and Cambridge between them account for tens of thousands of young people, so it is not entirely surprising that incidents of stupid and inappropriate behaviour do come up.

"When they go too far, they face the consequences.”

But it is not just Oxbridge students who have made headlines for bad behaviour. In March this year, the University of East Anglia's rugby team was disbanded after they attended a "bad taste" party dressed as Joseph Kony, Baby P and the late Gary Speed.

In 2010, York University's hockey club was fined £200 after hosting a vomit-filled initiation ceremony, where students were made to down drinks mixed with dog food and goldfish.
