Raditions. The issues on various youth subcultures of different origins, traditions, semantic configurations of texts have been very popular for the recent years. Therefore, we need to study the influence of different factors facilitating the formation of students' subculture. The aim of this publication is to consider the factors that influence the formation of the students' subculture in Linguistic Universities. Results. The process of formation and functioning of the student subculture is largely represented in the educational space which is due to the very nature of the phenomenon “youth subculture”. There are few factors influencing the formation of the future teachers' subculture, such as “personality”, individual's surrounding. Another factor is the polylinguistic environment in which students study. In the process of teaching a foreign language, the implementation of the cultural aspect is supported by the discipline "Country Studies". Students are actively involved in the organization of these holidays: Boxing Day, Christmas, St. Valentine's Day, Saint Patrick's Day, Halloween, and Thanksgiving Day. Students celebrate the holidays at the university and in their families. The students' use of the words borrowed from different disciplines which they study in their everyday lives is also very important. There are such English borrowings as teacher, tail, break, shop, like, slippers, computer, money, look, girl, fine, nice and others. The texts which are represented within the topic “youth clothing” are popular as well (e. g. ”Don't worry! Be happy!”, “All you need is peace”, etc.). Students studying foreign languages understand inscriptions; therefore, they reflect their worldview, moral values. Conclusion. Thus, the formation of students' subculture is influenced by the factors, as follows: the polylinguistic environment in which they study, the specificity of disciplines and personality. The student's youth subculture includes the value aspect of professional education combines with the university and faculty traditions as the most important part of self-identification, self-determination, which differ students of foreign languages departments from the other ones in their slang, worldview and traditions.
