• The UK’s grimmest student houses revealed: Brighton flat crowned the messiest in nationwide search
  • Winner and runners up revealed in UK’s messiest student competition 

A female student from Brighton University has been crowned the UK’s messiest as part of a nationwide competition.

20-year-old Sarah, who is studying PGCE, sent in pictures of her kitchen in a state of carnage, which she shares with her four flatmates, after a wild night out.

She has been crowned the UK’s messiest student as part of a photo competition by insurance providers, SO-SURE, and has now been awarded a £200 Just Eat voucher, which should hopefully help her avoid the washing up. Here is her winning entry, as well as a roundup of five of the worst offending pictures from across the UK:

  • Sarah, 20, Brighton University 

Mmmm floor pizza! And a kettle in the sink?! This sight is not something you want to have to deal with after a heavy night on the tiles. The sheer volume of chaos in this picture earned Sarah and her pals the £200 food voucher, so they can add a few more takeaway boxes to the collection.

  • Natasha, 21, Derby University

Natasha, a student from the University of Derby, is a little behind on her laundry, oh well, floorspace is overrated any way. Extra points for spotting her opportunist cat who hopes she doesn’t find the washing machine any time soon.

  • Josh, 19, Nottingham Trent University 

Josh from Nottingham Trent University shared this spectacular image, can you spot his house mate amongst the mess? Looks like the two of them have a lot of cleaning to do on a hangover…

  • Jack, 19, Oxford Brookes University

We’re not 100% sure how Jack, from Oxford Brookes University, manages to get around his room. Clothes, bedding, and dodgy meal deals everywhere, it’s ok though, at least he has incense sticks.

  • Cassie,  20, Bournemouth University

Maximising wardrobe space by leaving everything on the floor, this ‘messy gal’ is one step ahead of us all. It can’t be easy finding an outfit in that pile of clothes.

  • Max, 21, Cardiff University 

Finally, someone found the bin bags! Looks like the clean-up of Max’s living room has already started here, what could it have looked like before?! Stella, Greggs, and Red Stripe, a classy combo and student staple.

Senior Marketing Manager, Gabriel Cabral at SO-SURE, commented: 

“We often hear students have a reputation for messy flats and a party lifestyle. And  so, we wanted to put this to the test and find some of the filthiest in the UK. We wanted to give the winners of the messiest accommodation a takeaway voucher, so they can treat themselves to a takeaway after a good old tidy. We had some great entries, from universities all over the UK, but Sarah’s kitchen in Brighton is definitely a worthy winner!”
