So I’m a fresher this year and this past week has been my freshers week and I’ve made pretty much no friends. Everyone else seems to have bonded and made friendship groups whereas I am on my own. I know it’s only the first week of uni and I have plenty of time to meet new people but I wanted to know how long did it take others to find their friends when starting uni. Was it instant or did it take time?

I’m in the same position. I’ve been told to give it time but maybe try getting used to your own company

I feel that this is very common amongst students - university can either be the most socialable time of your life or the loneliest. I started last year so my first year at uni is a bit of a write-off, albeit I got on with my flat mates and made a handful of friends (although not close ones) throughout the year.

As you say it takes time. I'm gambling on connecting with more people during my second and third year which is apparantly where you make much closer friends.

Yeah it does. I’m hoping that during my lectures maybe I’ll be able to make friends.
