Hey, guys, I'm a black girl going to the University of Cumbria at the Lancaster campus, but I'm a bit nervous and was wondering if there were any black people in Lancaster to make friends with obviously I'm open to all race but for comfort reasons, it would be nice to meet other black people.

There are cultural differences even within a country and looking at the political climate we live in there is always a fear of discrimination. Your own people would not do so.

it is pretty common for minorities to seek each other out. including ethnic minorities, women & lgbt people.

Since when were women a minority?

There are almost 1 million more women than men living in the UK

Oh didn’t know that I see women separate but I live in a rural area so not many homosexuals or other ethnicity’s here so don’t really see them separate into groups

Perhaps someone should tell Mr Johnson that given the low opinion he has of them.

I think when they say minority in the sense that people who have faced discrimination in the past

easier to just include women in minority rather than have to specify "and women because of oppression" but you made me do it anyway.

Have you checked out The Gregson Centre? Give them a call and see if they have anything going on that might interest you. It's super inclusive there with many groups, or there was pre-covid. If there's nothing suitable, they may still be able to point you in the right direction.

One of the things you can do is reach out on social media sites that the unis do. Not sure about UClan, but when my daughter joined lancaster ones around April of this year, Lancs did a freshers group page, and then from there people chatted and got added to various groups under 'subject course', 'accommodation type' , and you can get to know people that way.

If your applying for 2021, then best time to join groups is April/May 2021 as they tend to start about then. Her subject group chat virtually met up once a week to do quiz nights, online escape rooms etc. When my daughter started this weekend, shes met up with them all she chatted with since April; and plus with her new flatmates too, she loves it. And because its covid, her subject group will be ongoing on line to help each other out with problem sheets together.

If you are about to start this year, there will be societies you can also join too to make friends

I’m an ethnic minority but have nothing in common with black people or Indians culturally more so than white people. Am I supposed to go to them for comfort just because there’s lots of whites? Lol. My university is like 95% white but I get on with everyone
