What are possible meanings for dreams of campuses?
A campus setting in a dream can relate to learning, knowledge and intellectual challenge.
It’s common to dream about campuses after encountering a difficulty or issue for which you’re unprepared. A campus is where you learn and prepare, so naturally it is a good setting for addressing those subjects.
For example, you must give a presentation but lack confidence. You dream about being on campus, maybe in a communications class, and it connects with the challenge of learning new skills related to the challenge you face.
Or you dream you are back on campus and didn’t graduate. You forgot to take a course, or you suddenly have an exam to take or paper due. There’s so much to do—argh! That can symbolize feeling like you have gaps in your knowledge or preparation. For an example dream, see: Teacher.
This theme also tends to arise in the dreams of people who realize they want to change careers. They return to campus in their dreams to think through what they’d rather be doing.
Of course, if you live or work on a campus, your dreams about it are more likely to connect with everyday events and issues.
More possible meanings are tied to a time of life when you lived on a campus, the social aspects of campus life, and perceptions about what it is like. For example, you perceive campus life as all parties and hookups, and here you are with a job and a kid and no social life. On some level you envy people who don’t have your obligations. Or you graduated and your life is a daily grind of work and responsibility. You miss the freedom and fun of campus life. How do you inject more fun into your life?

Confusing dream about getting lost at a college party and a wolf turning to Ash
I dream that I was going to a new college. It was kind of a redneck campus if I remember correctly so my bi ass already felt quite unwelcome. I lived on campus and all of the buildings that the classes were in were located way far away from the dorm rooms. We had to hike a mile through the woods and the mud in order to get to campus. I was hiking to what I think was the student center on a dreary, disgusting, chilly overcast day and was covered in mud by the time I got there.
There was a big party in the student center I was trying to get to. Somehow no one there looked as disheveled as I did even though they all walked too. Everyone looked all nice and fancy and then there's me - cold, sweaty, wet frizzy hair from the rain, grass stained jeans and mud-caked boots. I was very self conscious.
Then this black guy who was apparently pretty popular on campus showed up in a shiny bright purple tux with a fog machine. He greeted everyone and was even friendly to me, the guy who looked so dirty and had tracked in mud. Then he stood on top of some kind of weird podium thing in the center of the room and turned on the radio while waving to everyone.
People were dancing and I was feeling a little overwhelmed when the crowd started parting abruptly. I turned around and there's some guy walking a fucking timberwolf on a leash. The wolf walks right up to me, sniffs at me and starts growling and baring it's teeth. But just when I think it's about to lunge at me the wolf turns to ashes.

I ask a mom out for a date towards the end of my dream.
The earliest thing I remember is that I was attending an event at my college campus. I was in the middle of work (I’m a 20y old college work study IRL) and my boss told me to drop in on the event and meet people and take a break from work. I was supposed to be there for about an hour. We are still working from home, so I was gonna be gone for about an hour and 30 minutes.
I’m at the event and I’m not talking to anyone, I just get there and look for a spot to sit. I still get paid just to be at someplace, so I’m not complaining. I set myself at a couch and there is this kid just having fun to himself next to me, he’s about 5 or 6. He’s the only one I talk with throughout the event, and I’m just sitting there enjoying my two capri suns throwing questions at this kid and answering whatever questions he comes up with.
Then his mom comes toward us. She was keeping an eye on him from a little distance while she was with her girlfriends. I get a closer look at her when she comes and she is beautiful. She almost looks like Zazie Beetz. Her facial features are different enough to know she’s not a celebrity. She must have been around my age, probably a year or two older than me. So she asks if her kid has been a bother, and I of course let her know he’s been good for the last half hour.
So we start talking and speak for the rest of the event and past that. We just walk around campus with her kid and have conversations about ourselves. She asks me about my job favorite things, idiosyncrasies and other stuff, and I’m just having a delight speaking with her. I never found out if the dad of the kid is still around, didn’t think the question was appropriate.
Eventually I get a call from my boss, and I was supposed to be back home for about 2 hours. She doesn’t know I’ve been gone for long and just asks me if I went to the event. So now I have to go back home and continue working. We walk towards my car and before I leave, I ask her if she would like to go out for dinner tomorrow. She said yes. I don’t remember getting her digits before, but I already had her number. I drive and get home. I wake up.

An oddly sensual, vivid dream I had this morning
I want to share an unusually vivid dream from last night.
I was on a college campus that I'd never been to before, with lots of people. I was at a bar/refreshment stand in the middle of a multi-story union/classroom building with an atrium and second story balcony leading to classrooms and a basement off to my left. Someone kept handing me sticks of gum, so I kept chewing them. Eventually my mouth was full of gum, and some was running down my throat to the point that I had to pull long, thick strings of gum out of my throat, which gagged me and made me drool. I went to get a drink, but there was no bartender to be found. I wanted Jaeger for some reason, which I never drink, so I looked behind the bar and saw a tap for Jaeger but then noticed an ex girlfriend from highschool walking in a group of people in the upstairs balcony/hall. I tried to wave but she didn't see me.
Next I'm walking into to a classroom, long and thin with multiple tables, and a large whiteboard on wheels in the middle of the room. It was supposedly for a science or math class. There was a few other students filing in behind me. The class was on the second or third floor, which matters later. I sat down at the back behind the whiteboard, near a set of glass swing-out windows. I found a pair of socks (supposedly mine?) laying on the ground under my feet and thought something about "guess they're still here."
Suddenly I'm in the same classroom, but it's mostly empty and dark, like the Upside Down. There are some weird egg sac pustule looking things attached to the wall. They pulsed and sprayed a thin, airy jet of "eggs" or "seeds" and even though I was freaked out, somehow I knew that the larvae were going to become butterflies.
Then I was back in the room as normal. A group of young men stood up and carried a microwave to a window, which they swung open with force. I stood up and turned towards them. They yelled "ONE, TWO, THREE, LOOK OUT BELOW!" and proceeded to throw the microwave out the window and I watched as the last of the cord disappeared whipping wildly as it fell. It crashed on the cement below, where multiple students were walking into the building from a parking lot.
Next thing I know I'm back at the bar island with a pint in front of me. I was sat down at the far side of the bar from where the dream started and there was a short, cute, blonde girl with large breasts sitting next to me. We talked for a second, then she was in my arms, being sweet and affectionate. I could feel her bra under her shirt where her extravagant breasts pressed into me. I walked her to the basement where a large glass double door was leading to a classroom and as soon as we got to the bottom she said something about not being mine. I got on my knees and jokingly begged for her back, it wasn't obvious if she was being serious, because we were both still laughing and smiling. She said something I can't remember and so I walked back up the stairs. When I reached the top, she threw her arms wide and yelled "Come and get me boys, I'm right here!" I gave her the finger and walked away through a large throng of students yelling something about "1% of 1%, you don't know what you're missing." Which means nothing to me awake.
Then I woke up.

Haven't had one this scary in a while
I was studying chemistry at a very prestigious University, the students all had an expensive looking uniform and everyone was always super stressed out because of the workload. We also had a campus where students resided in.
I remember I was in the school library searching for a book that I needed to pass a chemistry exam. After looking for it for a while, a teacher started following me and eventually got angry at me because I wasn't studying, apparently. I don't remember much of his appearance or face anymore, but he surely was old to the point he had wrinkles and white hair but still managed to move just fine, I'd say he was maybe 60 or 70.
For some reason, after that, I remember going back on campus and taking a nap. Later, still in the dream, I got woken up. The room was dark and I could only see a shadowy figure coming towards me. I tried asking who it was but my voice felt feeble.
Eventually that person got really close to me and grabbed my left arm while also groping me with his other hand. He then told me to shut up cause he was "daddy" but I could tell he wasn't my father, his skin felt old and somehow I just knew it was that professor from earlier. I remember trying to struggle but I couldn't get out of his grasp, for some reason my body felt heavy and frozen. I screamed for help at least 3 times, but every time my voice came out weaker and weaker, no one could hear me.
Immediately after that, thankfully, I woke up, my heart was beating so fast it seemed like it was about to explode.
The weird thing about this dream is that I don't study chemistry, neither do I go to a super prestigious college with a campus and I've never met that old man. Honestly I was really disturbed by this nightmare, it may not seem like much now, but I never dreamt something like this.
