I'm in my first year at uni and can't seem to make any connection with anyone. My flat mates constantly sit in and i have literally nothing in common with them. The four of them get on really well and then there is just me. In my course no one seems to interested in getting to know anyone. I'm just tired seeing groups of people chilling out or partying and i'm just by myself all the time. I definitely have tried to socialise but can't seem to make any friends. I was so exited to go to uni and meet new people but unfortunately it seems that its so much harder than i thought. I've joined four student groups today so maybe that will help. Any advice ??

Keep going, you will make friends when you least expect it. Good you are going to different groups, you may gel with someone. Just keep going and you will find someone. Good luck!

I'm struggling with friends too
But keep going to society events, I've met new people at each social - look out for people in tutorials and lectures - say hi to random people you encounter. I know it sometimes feel hopeless but we've just got to keep trying, and cross our fingers. I truly believe - especially from what I've heard from others who struggled in their first year - it will work out.

It’s frustrating & that could always be the case. Just keep trying but please don’t make the mistake that I have made.. don’t get too worried about this and forget about the most important thing in uni, study. Make sure you don’t screw your exams. Otherwise you would be more upset.. (also, even you make some friends finally, still need time to develop your friendships not gonna be easy but don’t give up
