It is possible to make friends. Whilst at university you'll make friends through your course, they are people with similar interests as you. You can study together and do things together as the year goes on and as I've said, you'll make friends like that. At the same time, you can join societies whilst you are there and make friends through those gatherings.
Don't panic yourself too much!

I want you to understand that you don't have to drink in order to make friends. I don't drink, go clubbing or anything like that, even then I have a good social circle. You just need to join societies at your uni that you like and attend different events. You can also perhaps volunteer at your uni.
Don't be afraid to start a convo. No one's going to eat you lol. Just be yourself and you'll be amazed to see how many like minded people you'll come across. But please do not pretend to be something that you're not. That's not attractive and no one likes to be with someone who is not secure within themselves.
