    Cool In my university or at my university? Thank you.

    When I say "XX is a professor in(at) my university"
    Which one should I use.
    If it depends, can you give me more examples?
    Thank you!

    I was using "you" to mean "one". If you prefer, "In BrE, one is a professor at a university."
