    stay at university after classes

    Do we need an article in this sentence? In BrE we don't put an article if a student is at university to study. And what about extracurricular activities attending a gym, for example), is it also part of being a student, or does the university become just a building and we need the (to stay at the university)?

    Do you ever stay at ___ university after classes?
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Re: stay at university after classes

    I would probably say something like "Do you ever stay on/stay around at university after classes?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
