King's College London if you're wondering

Why? I live in private accommodation and I've barely met anyone, got a couple friends on my course but if I don't go to lectures I basically have no social life.
Why don't I join societies? Facebook search our societies, they basically don't exist, I've asked 2nd and 3rd years on which societies are good to join they said pretty much all of them aren't active.

What's my plan if I drop-out? Going to try for Durham since they gave me a reduced offer when applying and the college system (formals; matriculation; etc), but I need to be out before end of December to re-apply to UCAS. I'm going to stay until end of term but the fact I'm not motivated to pay attention in lectures or do my work says it all really.

TL;DR: I hate KCL, not for me, wish we had societies, wanna drop out and re-apply for UCAS - hopefully go to Durham.

why not form an active society yourself? if the societies aren't active, how do other students meet new friends?

London uni's aren't for everyone - they can definitely be quite isolating given how spread out accommodation is as well as the size and general busyness of the city. If you're not happy then definitely look into Durham or any other uni's you might be potentially interested in - no point staying somewhere that will make you unhappy

I've lived [grew up] in London my entire life so really the size/busyness of the city is something I'm accustomed to.

KCL gave me 2 halls more expensive than my maintenance loan even after applying for their affordability scheme while Durham reduced my offer when I was predicted 2 grades above their standard offer and I think that says it all..

Not being in halls and inactive societies is making it impossible to meet people.

I've literally given up on KCLSU and just signed up to UCL/QMUL events to see if I can meet people from there.

I've wasted first year and Durham's course (Computer Science) is a bit different and of course a lot more difficult.
