Et in Cantabrigia Ego

A Cambridge University student-sponsored news blog (The Tab) has published interviews with several incoming students. One seems to have gotten her ancient universities a bit mixed:

Holly, History, Pembroke. “I applied to Cambridge under the illusion that I would have the chance to float around like Sebastian Flyte. However, it turns out that Brideshead Revisited is actually set in Oxford, and Sebastian ends up as an alcoholic in a Tunisian monastery. So thanks, Evelyn Waugh, for ruining my life. I have adjusted my mindset accordingly and now am, instead, very much looking forward to regular brunch and the prospect of wearing trainers clubbing. My poor toes rejoice.

Is it not done to “wear trainers clubbing” at the other Ancient University?
