2nd year loneliness Watch
I'm also increasingly anxious over next years housing as I don't know who I will live with.
I feel like I could go through all three years of my degree with no close friends and could be lonely for all three years.
Can anyone suggest anything I could do to improve my uni experience and accommodation tips for next year?

I had a similar problem when i was in sheffield, in my second year, i went with some flats in town, home for students, can't remember building name, i asked and got put in with people my year, made some good friends there. It is just luck sometimes. Don't fret, keep going to all things on your society you'll make friends in no time
Just continue your very healthy practices and get involved as much as you can- within your course, society and any other opportunities led by your SU. You may even find friends in unexpected places like your gym, or if you have a job, at work! Sometimes finding friends can just be down to luck so don't stop putting in the effort just because it hasn't worked out a few times in the past.
Don't forget to keep in touch with family and friends back home because that can also make a HUGE difference.
Hope this helped, and hope you find some friends soon!
