Anyone else in this position right now or only me? Like its abysmal bad, my social life. I'm interested in a grand total of 0 of the societies my University has to offer, my housemates all have their own friend groups and I only have 1 friend on my course who has better friends to hang out with.

What does this mean for 2nd year then? Am I definitely screwed? Like I'm definitely not going to have found my friend group, think about it as I'm interested in 0 societies, only have 1 friend on my course who has way better friends in his flat anyways and I'm only meh with housemates.

I saw a post that said that people look for flats around now for 2nd year. How am I gonna do that when I have 0 good friends at Uni? Does this mean I need to book a flat for myself right now then?

My conclusion from being at Uni: University Social Life is extremely overrated, most people know eachother beforehand and if you are in unsocial halls like me and dont like any of the societies, there are 0 ways to make good friends.

Hi!

You're only a couple of weeks into uni by this time, so you've got plenty of time to make friends. Plus there are so many students who still look for a house in January. You'll have plenty of opportunities in seminars.
Maybe have another look at societies. It doesn't have to be sport related it could be people who watch movies together. Just try and be open-minded. Have you tried introducing yourself to your flat neighbours? This might be another chance to meet some more people and make friends.
What makes you meh with your housemates? Try and organise a flat night out or go and do something together, like go bowling. This might allow them to open up a bit more and for all to get to know each other.

Best wishes
