I'm at uni but with covid restrictions, I'm honestly finding the whole experience quite lonely. I spend most of my time in my room and my don't really like on with my flatmates.
Any tips?

See if you can sign up for some clubs or societies if you haven't already, and check if they have groupchats or online social events you can join. It's a good way to get to know people who you already have interests or hobbies in common with without meeting in person, and from there there's not much stopping you from meeting up for real later (covid permitting).

Hi!!

I totally understand... This year is a struggle and a lot of students feel lonely

Join some societies? Join online groupchats e.g. Facebook, Messenger and Whatsapp or even discord. I met my good friends online through universities groupchats!!

I joined various groupchats for my accommodation, course, university and freshers group!

Maybe try organising a chill night playing games or something with your flatmates? They may be really nice once you get to know them better? Play among us with them

Hello

Hope you are doing well.

I understand how you must be feeling, starting university can be a daunting experience without the added restrictions of CoVid. I would recommend trying to socialise with others through group chats, join societies if you can as they may be holding events for students within the safety guidelines. It is a difficult time at the moment, so it is understandable that you are having an experience different to what you may have been expecting.

I hope I was able to help somewhat. If you have any questions please do feel free to ask, I would be more than happy to help.

All the best,

Shaf

Sometimes you just got to throw yourselves into really uncomfortable situations. I am an introvert but I will try to stand with people chatting in groups etc and often find myself joining in chats. When you are in your flat, you just got to go into the kitchen to get water/food and often will see others. If you see anyone just say hi and just share a few thoughts about cooking etc and next thing you know people are opening up about crazy stories involving food that digresses into chats about aliens, football, etc etc. I also agree with the above posters about group chat/societies.

Half the work is turning up and just saying hi. Rest will come as you get more involved- within Covid guidelines.
