Your university may hold specific non-alcoholic events in freshers so you could go to these. Also, joining societies is also a great idea, as when I don't drink and I found that societies will try and also have socials that don't involve drinking.
I found that some societies have a huge focus on going out and drinking. Especially the ones that are just a joint interest rather than a hobby or activity. Societies like craft, walking, sports (etc.) are much more likely to have regular activities that do not include drinking. I would recommend going to these ones if you are looking to make like minded friends.
