I mean sure it's nice to have people like yourself around but at the same time uni is about spreading your wings, explore new things and getting to know new people.

Have you looked at societies that are your interests rather than your ethnicity? Football society history society etc
You're in london im sure there are plenty of social groups and clubs even if the uni doesnt run them, have a google search for societies in your area of london

Middle Eastern and Arab undergrad students tend to prefer 6 english unis, avoiding all the rest.
Uni is all about talking to new people, making new memories and broadening your horizons.
Are you interested in fashion, food, politics or human rights?
Most unis have multiple societies for this.
