Snapchat introduces Our Story dedicated to UK universities on Discover

Tyrone Stewart

Snapchat StoriesSnapchat has launched a daily Our Story that is available to students at over 100 universities across the UK.

The UK University Our Story will feature a curated selection of Snaps, updated throughout the day, submitted by students on campuses from across England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland to provide a look at university life from different perspectives up-and-down the UK.

More than 100 universities will be geofenced, and only Snapchatters within these locations can view and post to the special Our Story. It can be found on Discover in Snapchat.

Universities included in the UK-wide Our Story include Cambridge University, University of Oxford, University of St Andrews, University College London, Queen’s University, Belfast, Cardiff University, and many more.

Last week, Snapchat confirmed it was working with US colleges and universities to produce campus editions for its Discover section. Unlike the UK university rollout, these campus editions are exclusive to the university which has created them. It has partnered with dozens of campus editorial teams in places such as Berkeley, Texas A&M, Syracuse, and The University of Wisconsin-Madison.
