4 days ago I moved into McMillan Student village as I will be studying fashion at Ravensbourne University London. My uni doesn’t have its own halls of residence and at McMillan there are a students from many different universities. I’m very shy, And get anxious when meeting new people so I haven’t Approached anyone. I live in a studio room which means that I have my own kitchen so I don’t have to go into the shared kitchen so I haven’t seen anyone who’s living in the same halls as me. I don’t know what to do because I don’t want to be lonely as part of university is about socialising, having fun and meeting new people, but I’m extremely nervous to approach people.

Are you the person that posted a couple of days ago? Hopefully not as there is someone in exactly the same boat if it isn't you so do a search and send them a message. However, if that was you, did you try any of the suggestions given? If you really don't think you can approach anyone, how about asking a friend from home to visit for the weekend and see if together you can try and speak to some new people. Last ditch effort could always try changing accommodation to somewhere where you have to use communal kitchen.
