GAY CRUISING ON CAMPUSES.

Byline: BY BEN SCHOFIELD

MEN hunting for gay sex with strangers are targeting Birmingham's university campuses.

Birmingham, Aston and UCE universities are all listed on an online database showcasing favoured venues, the Sunday Mercury can reveal.

Sick surfers are being led to toilets on the campuses by a website uncovered by the Mercury, but which we have decided not to name.

The cruising site lists 15,000 favoured locations, 88 of which are in Birmingham, including public toilets and parks used by families.

Specific toilets in Birmingham University's Main Library and the main building on Aston University's campus have their own listing and reviews.

UCE's Perry Barr campus also has a listing, with users recommending facilities in the Cox Building.

Birmingham University's Main Library was last night in the top 10 locations. Men had used the site to arrange a meeting as recently as last Wednesday.

Users are told where to find the library on campus, how to get in without a student pass, and the best coded signal to give to see if other men want sex, too. Last night, a Birmingham University spokesman said: "We have increased security in the main library and we are liaising with the police."

David Packham, Aston University's Secretary and Registrar, said: "We have an equal opportunities policy and we are very much against discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation. But this is a misuse of university facilities."

Sally Westney, Pro-Vice Chancellor of UCE Birmingham, said: "We have no reason to believe that people are coming onto campus for this purpose."
