Hey everyone! I'm a first year uni student in Belfast living in halls. I've been feeling really isolated at the minute with COVID and social distancing measures as I can't attend freshers events to meet new people. My roommates have been getting on really well with each other but if I try making conversation with them it's just small talk or they will talk amongst themselves because we don't share the same interests. I've joined a group chat with other students in my course and we plan to meet up before classes start but I'm finding it difficult to socialise with others. Any advice on finding other people in the city?

Hey there, sorry to hear about this. Good to hear that you've joined a group chat with your fellow coursemates - it's a good start to try and socialise with others. Have you also tried joining some student societies that you're interested in? Obviously given Covid is still prevalent, your uni may not have a physical Freshers fair but presumably such societies would have organised virtual events and have group chats you can join. Hope this helps!
