A student has gone viral after showcasing her rundown university home, featuring a leaky light bulb, tiny shower and construction site in her garden.

Ami McGivney, who is studying at the University of Worcester, lives in the £115-a-week property with four friends and took to TikTok to document the bizarre local accommodation.

The amusing clip shows one of her housemates squeezing into a tiny shower, a disjointed skirting board, washing hanging on the table, a door without a handle and an outside bin without a lid.

The voiceover announces: ‘Things in our uni house which just make sense’, before the video pans to its various features.

The 21-year-old said: ‘We just thought all students go through this and move into a university home that’s always a bit run down.

‘It was just light-hearted humour to make the best out of a bad situation. We actually have a really good landlord, he fixed all the problems as soon as we informed him.

‘We pay £115 per week including bills so it’s really good for where we’re based,’ she concluded.

The video racked up over 107,000 views on social media and users were quick to comment on the unsafe home.

One said: ‘Hilarious. But I can’t believe landlords allow students to live like this. Same when I was at uni.’

Another commented: ‘I would seriously get Environmental Health on to this. If only for the leaky light bulb,’ while a third said: ‘I wouldn’t of moved in,’

However, others saw the funny side. One said: ‘The giggles make this 10x better.’ Another commented: ‘University… ahhhhh those were the days!’

Ami added: ‘We were shocked at how many people it reached. We just thought it would reach our friends and family. 

‘It made us feel a bit better about our home, it’s nice to know other students related to it and that we hadn’t been given a raw deal.’

Rachel Cartwright, Ami’s roommate, also 21, added: ‘Ami and I have been friends for ten years and have always made videos together. We thought only our friends would see it, it’s crazy how big it went.’
