2 things I noticed about bus stop seats.
1) Drunk people pee on the seats, so many people prefer not to sit on there.
2) Two strangers will prefer to not sit closer than 10 meters away from eachother.
I know that this sounds unprofessional, but is an important aspect to consider, which is why on my bus stop design in my main account, I did not put a lot of consideration on seating.
Good point, how relevant would it be though for the university stop? It sounds as if it would see most use during standard working hours. If one tried to relieve themselves in the morning peak, I'm sure someone would notice.

Two tired people or two friends will sit next to each other.
A drunk person could pee on anything - it is not a reason to avoid building it, but it is a good reason to make more public toilets.
