Caroline Johnson, a Conservative MP on the education select committee, said the two universities should look again at Mr Bercow’s appointment in light of the “very damning” findings against the former Buckingham MP.
“I feel sure that neither institution would wish its staff or students to be bullied nor to be seen to back someone found to have been a serial bully,” she said, while acknowledging the universities were free to make their own decisions.
A Whitehall source added: “Uni students have put up with plenty enough over the last few years.
“The prospect of the disgraced former Speaker, bereft of his parliamentary pass and with time to kill, must fill them with dread.”
Michael Fabricant, who accused Mr Bercow of bullying Lord Lisvane, the clerk of the House, while he was still Commons Speaker, said he was “surprised” he had not been sacked in light of the findings.
“I am surprised that despite two reports now branding Bercow a bully, both Royal Holloway and Birkbeck still think that he is an appropriate person to engage young people’s minds,” he said.
Mr Fabricant has also called for a full debate in Parliament on Mr Bercow’s conduct and what lessons can be learnt from it.
Lord Lisvane, who was then known as Sir Robert Rogers, is one of the three Commons staff members bullied by Mr Bercow, according to the panel’s report.
Kate Emms and Angus Sinclair, two of Mr Bercow’s former private secretaries, were also found to have been bullied.
