Tinder to Release Student-Only Feature in UK

Tinder is going to launch a new feature that will allow students at UK universities to connect with others in their nearby area.

To sign up to ‘Tinder Uni‘, students must verify their email address in the Education tab in the app. When the mode is turned on, only nearby students will show up.

A spokesperson for the dating app said: “Tinder was first introduced on a college campus in 2012 and since then we are still very close to our core members, with more than half of our members aged between 18 to 25 years old.”

For the launch, Tinder will visit several UK universities throughout March and April, during which they plan to offer ice cream and discounts on student events. 

Tinder first introduced this feature to the US in 2018, under the name Tinder U, and the UK is only the second country where it will go live.

In February last year, Tinder U ran a special promotion in celebration Spring Break, and allowed students to add a badge to their profile to show where they were going to spend the holiday.

Tinder is also preparing to release a brand new feature called ‘Concierge‘, which will help singles improve their profiles to attract more matches.
