Wear a mask, wash your hands, get antibac spray, don't congregate indoors.

Basically just be sensible when moving from place to place.

Yeah if you stand at least 2 meters apart outdoors. If you’re not old or have any health conditions or live with or have regular contact with anybody with health conditions, you shouldn’t be so scared to catch it.

In groups of max 6, keep a metre or 2 where possible, wash hands etc.
I would suggest if you do so, do it outside, but nothing stopping you from going to a pub or restaurant.

I know but I've heard of people my age with no underlying conditions suffering quite badly from covid.

Hi!

Your halls of residence or course might have a chat or Facebook page. You could always try and message in there asking if anyone would like to meet, but while keeping to the government guidelines. Or ask a society group page, something that you might be interested in while at uni, is another place to ask.

I hope this helps!

yeah that seems like a good idea. I will try to keep most of my socialising (apart from with housemates) outdoors then.

Join some societies still. Some people are avoiding societies because they don't like the remote element. But it doesn't have to be remote. Meet some people, get to know them and if you make a small group of friends with the same interest, you can branch off and have socially distanced meet ups in a local park. If you're in remote lectures, maybe see if anyone wants to start a small revision group to meet up locally, you can meet over food and drinks still.
Follow the advice given, wear masks, take hand gel/ antibac wipes with you etc.

It is much easier to make friends face to face, but there are ways to take remote interactions to being in person. Unless lockdown happens again, but who knows?
