Try and put yourself in situtations outside of your comfort zone to meet a different range of people - for example look at any evening highland dancing groups, or go to the gym or the library, if you don't normally! Are you first year? Have you not gelled with anyone on your course? Hvae confidence to approach people and chat - uni can be lonely but it is easy to get into a spiral where you then lose confidence and go out even less.

I usually just walk about the college or go to the smoking area. I’m the only girl in my class too and all the boys just stick together. Clubs might be a good idea but I’m unaware of any of these clubs as the place I study is a bit ****. I’ve got anxiety as well which sucks with talking to people.. thank you anyways tho I really appreciate it

Try joining some clubs or attending some events. Doesn't have to be clubbing or anything like that. Start some hobbies and meet people that way.
