I’m a first year who has made friends within my course but they are all really close with people in their halls, whereas both of my other flat mates have dropped out so I’m living alone. I don’t live far from the uni and the only reason I moved out was to make friends after struggling to in high school and sixth form. My friends from my course are lovely but they all talk about house virwing with their flat mates but I obviously don’t have any flat mates to do that with. I’ve joined societies but can’t really afford to do any of the socials they’ve out on so far, and the other people living in my block are really hostile and keep themselves to themselves.
I’m just feeling like moving out for uni was a mistake and that I just always seem to struggle making proper friends.
It’d just be nice to have a friend and go for a coffee with, you know?

I finished my degree at Liverpool this summer, and I didn't have my solid group of friends (that I am in touch with now) until mid-2nd Year. As you can see from this thread, lots of people are in the same boat.

Just get yourself out there, and things will happen. I'm sure of it.

Hiya, I was at Liverpool Hope uni last year and I totally understand how hard it is to make friends at university. People have different personalities so other people just click with others more easily. It could be a possibility if you don’t like the halls your living in right now to move to a different hall where there may be some nicer people to live with and get to know? It’s good that you’ve made friends with people on your course so just try and build those friendships up a bit further and I’m sure you’ll get closer to other people on your course. It’s still early days if you have only started uni this year and it can take a bit of time for things to feel like they’re falling into place. You don’t need to live with any people in houses next year (I did that this year and it didn’t go well so I’ve left hahah) you can apply to live in halls again. Just try and build up the friendships with people you already know and just try and be friendly and nice to anyone you come across

hiya! sadly moving halls isn’t an option- my tenancy agreement doesn’t allow you to move out unless someone else takes over your tenancy (and within my halls it’s quite hard to get someone too) and even so i couldn’t afford it however i’ve told my course friends how i’m feeling and they’ve been lovely about it, we’re planning on doing something on monday and possibly going out on friday depending on if we can afford it hahahah. thank you for the advice!

Ahhh I see, people were moving out all the time in my halls last year 😂I’m glad that your friends on your course helped you out, they sound like good people so sounds like you have some good mates there
