Hi, I’m really struggled during my time at university to make friends. I’ve joined societies but I always feel like a bit part. Anyone have any suggestions of things that could help would be greatly appreciated.

University is the starting point of life, and it is also a place that requires hard work

Hey AthleteRacer!

Really sorry to hear your going through this I totally get how your feeling, as I struggled to make friends at the start too. I wont talk about societies as I see your already in some, so here are some other suggestions:

1. Give yourself time! Friendships usually develop over the course of uni and may not happen right away, especially as when starting to figure out your own schedules and activities. Some of my closest friends were made towards the end of year cause I ended up spending more time with them through similar lectures and tutorials

2. If your living in Halls, go say hello to your neighbours. Like just bring over a box of biscuits or some other food and say you bought to much and wanted to see if they wanted some! Honestly, food is the way to students hearts... or was with my neighbours anyway! :lol: Just find a way to spark a convo with them.

3. Talk to everyone. If you talk to everyone you meet, you may end up finding people with similar interests along the way or people who you find really interesting or comfortable with.

Hope these help!

Bashful
