Often colleges and universities can be about the things we think about before going to bed. They represent issues which we have developed an educated and considered opinion after long and serious thought. Think about the personal issues and the books and ideas that have stimulated your own personal thoughts. Of course if you are presently attending a university it is very possibly just symbolic of some issue regarding your life there.


Example dream : A dream about being at a University quiz took place the day after the dreamer had impressed some people with his amazing knowledge on computers. They were praising him endlessly and telling him he was a genius. The University was a symbol of his impressive knowledge.
Example dream : A dream about a university took place the day after the dreamer met someone from college. The dreamer felt embarrassed because he had failed to achieve anything since leaving college and this friend had achieved so much. So the "university" in the dream was a symbol for the "college" and the dreams meaning linked to the dreamers thoughts about meeting this friend from college. The dream was quite negative in its feel and so this hints at the dreamer not enjoying meeting someone from the past.
Example dream : University in a dream linked to the dreamer thinking about his happy times at university.
Example dream : A dream about being a student took place as the dreamer was realising that he was still very immature. He had not settling in any job and into adult life generally. So the dream dealt with this theme and captured this thought "I have never settled into adult life. I feel like I have been a student all my life constantly drifting." People often use the phrase "he has been a student all his life" to describe someone who is "a bum" or "drifter" unable to settle into adult life.
