    Ok, so I never thought I'd do this, but hey. I've just moved to university, and due to problems getting university halls, I've had to go private sector. I don't mind so much as the fact I feel really out of the loop. I like my housemates, but they're of the opposite gender, older than me and sort of keep themselves to themselves. I just feel a bit isolated. I'm quite out of my depth here also because I'm in the middle of a city and I've lived way out in the countryside for most of my life, I know university is meant to be all about that, but with no friends, it's frightening and overwhelming. I hate to moan, I just was hoping that someone who has been in the same boat will read this and will tell me it's all going to be fine.

    Just wait until your course sproperly starts and you will be fine.

    I moved to a big city too after being in the country for the last 18 years with no one I knew going to the same uni, but I was lucky enough to be in halls and have made loads of friends.

    When your course starts you will find people that you have things in common with, be of both sexes, and of your age and it will all be fine from there

    I can't tell you it's going to be fine, but my advice is as follows: get to know those on your course and develop strong relationships with them. That should hopefully combat your unhappiness. Best of luck in the future!
