    I am curious to how others deal with loneliness at university, specifically Swansea.

    For those who haven't made friends in the first few months and are still walking on campus alone, what things are there to do to 'get out' and 'meet people'?

    I'm pretty much stuck at home all the time because most social places are very awkward to go to alone

    Hey, I am at Swansea Uni too, and I struggled making friends the first few months!

    My advice would be to go to wellbeing, they might be able to recommend some stuff to do, or get over any feelings of awkwardness you might have.

    Also, are there any societies you like the look of? Joining one can be intimidating at first, but they are a good way to meet people who'll have something in common with you.

    All the best!

    Are you from Swansea or new to the area for Uni? Have you considered joining a local sports club/choir or doing something like parkrun to meet people in the area?
