Yeah I agree at the start of the year I went into halls with great apprehension but slowly I settled in and in my second term I felt really at home at uni, much more comfortable than I had in the first term. This lead to me socialising more with my floor and the floor below and going out more. Me and my flat mates got on very well together and we made friends with 3 girls who we will also be living with in housing next year, and they are not in our current accommodation so making friends with your friends group of friends is a great way to network too!
I enjoy my quiet time alone not gonna lie, but it's good to get out of your comfort zone and before you know it the year is over and you have all summer to do whatever you want to my advice is throw yourself into uni life!
Dont be shy, make as many friends as possible.
