Nine in 10 universities have been accused of censoring speech, in the second annual survey of campus attitudes to free speech in the UK.
The number has risen from 80 per cent last year, when the rankings were first published by Spiked - the online magazine.
According to the report, policies are "creeping into every corner of students' academic and social lives", with 55 per cent of the 115 institutions surveyed marked 'Red' by the magazine.
