I'm not living in halls so I'm worried I'm not going to make many friends, all the people on my course seem to have formed little groups because they met each other in their accommodation and I'm worried it'll stay that way. I've tried talking to others but they don't really interact very much with me, will this change?
Yes you will, gradually. Did you join any clubs or societies during Freshers? Is there any group work on your course? Does your uni have any social events specifically for those who are not in halls? Will you participate in any sports?
Don't worry you'll make friends. Talk to someone who's alone and buddy up. There must be someone.
Hello I was in the same position as you last year. Nearly all the people on my course were in halls and I was in a house share with 6 others. Luckily I got on with the majority of them. Just be friendly and talk to everyone on the course, if you dont make friends then you are sure to find friends elsewhere... also I knew people in halls who hated their flat mates so maybe it's not all bad not staying in halls. Just be positive and friendly you are sure to make friends!
