I think the under 18 statement is most likely an insurance issue.  However, 
apart from Adam's explaination, I can't see a reason why they shouldn't 
allow students.  When I was at UEA, I went to many exhibitions which 'did 
not allow' students.  I was never questioned about it and it didn't seem to 
be a problem.  If you are concerned, just enter a fictional business name 
which isn't offensive ;)
