It's been a while since I was at university so I'm beginning to wonder how many of my own personal experiences are still relevant to any university life story I may or may not end up writing. There are a couple of things that almost certainly qualify as timeless (the world's most devastating dump by a long-term girlfriend, being subjected to an ordeal by one of my lecturers who thought disabled people didn't belong in university and that expending effort on me was a waste of resources, being so ill with flu one semester that I missed weeks and ultimately had to repeat a year as catching up was impossible, dealing with apartment-mates with a far more liberal attitude to cleanliness than your own, etc)
Other things have changed hugely as far as I can tell, though. My generation of students would have found "safe spaces" to be fucking hilarious and stupid, I managed to sneak under the wire regarding tuition fees and was of the last group of students that didn't have to pay them and therefore had very little student debt at the end of it all, the internet was very different to the internet today (if you wanted a new song for your collection you'd have to back up everything in your 10 mb of allocated file space to floppy discs, download an MP3 from an FTP server, use a utility to split the downloaded files into chunks small enough to fit into floppy discs and take them home in your pocket!) and the big hit during my first year was the Spice Girls.
I was thinking a little uni life story would be a nice way to get practice at writing because you don't really need a huge overarching story or plot to worry about, but I suspect that making it relatable to somebody in university now would be a lot harder than first thought.
