    Ill be moving to Uni in London, but I havent got a place in halls and will most likely be renting a house with a few other students (not all from my uni) about 30-40 mins away from my uni due to prices.

    Normally people make all their friends on freshers, however Im doing a degree/apprenticeship and so I will be working at a company for 3-4days and Uni 1-2 days, thus I cant go out every night on freshers due to working.

    I have a feeling it will impact making friends quite a bit.

    Any ideas for what I could do?

    I am pretty sure you can join societies in university. Try to join those where your interest lies. Do attend the events they set up only then you can make friends.

    You can also talk to your coursemates. Just interact with them before lecture starts or maybe after lecture ends.

    Join university group in facebook and get to know people there.

    Talk to your flatmates and maybe go out with them.
