UCT’s will commonly form small packs and take up residence in the city's trendiest and most expensive neighborhoods. The reasoning behind which is the aforementioned mom & dad financial support system and an irrational fear of not living "where the action is." It is a HUGE plus if any of these neighborhoods happen to back up against the campus of a city university as the local establishments will likely cater to the college-esque activities (bar crawls, tailgating, etc.) that they hold so dear.
Besides what is located within the boundaries of the neighborhoods they live in, univer-city transplants have a little more than a tourist’s knowledge of what a city may have to offer. However, they frequently try to affirm their self-proclaimed city-dweller status by dropping names of places that they consider to be hidden gems. In most cases these are well known institutions that even someone from out-of-state could point out. The use of Facebook to boisterously announce their newest “discovery” or “favorite spot” is also an annoyingly common trait amongst UCT’s.
