Hi i havent gone uni yet but if i were to go, would people be welcoming or friendly if i were to knock on their doors and introduce myself/try become friends with them within the first few weeks? And how would I even go about this bc im sure everyone will be feeling weird about making friends in the first few weeks, especially if it's some random guy at the door. Would a simple "hey im __ im live here nice to meet you" work to start the conversation? and then if they were willing enough, I would try talk about other things.

Of course! It's not weird at all. People will be grateful. 90% of people are nice and friendly.

People are usually quite welcoming and friendly.
When you first move into halls, the convention is for people to usually leave their door slightly open if they're okay with someone coming in and having a chat. That way you're not just running in on people

Yeah prop your door open. Otherwise people won't see if anyone is in there
