    Hello, So I have decided to commute to university not because of the cost but because I only live 20-30 mins away from the university by train and it would just be pointless to live on campus. However, I am worried about a few things. The first thing is freshers week like anyone who commuted how did you make friends during freshers since typically people in the same halls go around each other so how do I find a group to just go into and how do I make friends while commuting.

    Also, will my general social life be affected, I am a very sociable person but just wondering if people are already in hall groups how can I just become friends with them?

    Thanks

    People won't just make friends with the first people they see and then block out everyone else
    And yes people will make friends with the people in their hall but also the people in their course because they will spend more time around those people, so you shouldn't have any problems
