    Hi I am starting Uni in September- how easy is it to make friends?
    Hi there,

    I started University this September and I absolutely love it! I have to say, it's the hardest yet best thing you'll have done in your life so far and no two experiences are the same so I won't waffle on about what it was like for me.

    Basically, you will come across people from all walks of life, all completely in the same situation as you. The easiest people to make friends with are your flatmates, after that it'll be course mates and people you end up sitting with in lectures and seminars. You'll also find you'll make friends indirectly, by meeting friends of the initial friends you meet and even in obscure places such as the laundry room or even the lift! Don't worry about it, because everyone is in the same situation. I am sure you will meet people who will go on to be your friends for life. But make the most of it! Year 1 is nearly finished for me and I don't want it to end so treasure the experience!

    It’s almost too easy to make friends at uni. You do not need to worry about this but I know you will since it’s what everyone does. You got this OP you’ll have a blast!! Join societies, be nice to your flatmates, talk to people in seminars. Get the most out of your first year!!

    Hi there,well, it's easier than you think as all you have to do is talk to people around halls and campus as everyone is in the same boat. Joining a sports team/society could help also as it specifically finds people with the same interest as you! I'm in my first year and it did take me time to settle in,but really finding friends will come naturally.
