Hi lydia_d174

I wouldn't say there are any areas that are more or less appropriate for introverts. Find somewhere that has facilities or things you like doing. Most cities will have theatres, libraries and other things you may enjoy as opposed to partying. I would suggest looking into different areas you are interested in studying at and seeing what is available in that area/city to see if there are things you would enjoy doing in your free time.

Also, you are not alone! There will be others at university who are also introverted and don't enjoy partying so I would suggest when you are at university try to find others with the same interests via your course and clubs and societies.

Hope this helped

Hi there,

There is a stigma that comes with university that it is all about partying. However, there is far more to it than that. The thing is, university brings such a broad range of people together, so it's really diverse. That means that there are people there who like doing a range of different things, and enjoy different types of social activity. Wherever you go, there is always going to be elements of nighttime activity, but there will be plenty of other stuff going on too - whether it's sports, societies or clubs. The best way to figure out if it's your sort of vibe, is to attend an open day and speak to current students and staff about what it's really like.

Best of luck!

Hi I'm a first year introvert currently studying at KCL. Don't worry too much about the party aspect of uni. I haven't gone to any parties whatsoever and haven't gone clubbing and don't feel like I've missed out on anything. A couple of my flatmates party and go clubbing but they didn't peer pressure me into doing anything I didn't want to do. In fact, no one I've met has tried to force me into a party/club, they've just encouraged me to try something new once I feel more comfortable and have a group of friends that I trust. There's always the possibility of there being pres at your flat (they were a couple in my flat) but they generally stop after the first couple of weeks (at least that's what I've found here) and if you ask your flatmates for a heads up on when they're planning on having people over then you can try and avoid the kitchen if you don't want to party at all.

I made friends at events run by the uni (like a freshers breakfast and a pizza night at my accommodation) and by joining societies that I like. Also, joining group chats for your course and then meeting up with anyone that lives close/you like. And spend time in the kitchen! That's the best way of getting to know your flatmates cuz you all need to eat lol. I forced myself to sit in the kitchen with a book and some biscuits until I met someone during the second day after me moving in and now I feel a lot more comfortable around my flatmates and it's nice to hang out together during meal times. You won't miss out on the friend making despite not partying if you at least push yourself a little bit outside of your comfort zone in the beginning. I certainly hated the idea of going to events/societies(/the kitchen lol) on my own but I ended up meeting some rly nice people so the anxiety I endured at the beginning was worth it in the end.

Good luck with everything!

Hi there,

I am slightly bias as I do go to University here - but honestly, Liverpool has such a variety of things to get up to in the city that it's not JUST for people who like partying. For example, we have some of the most beautiful parks, great sporting facilities, great shopping, lots of activities (like golf, cinema, bowling etc) - and most things have some sort of student deal on so it's super affordable.

As well, everyone is super friendly in the city - and that really helps when you're making friends for the first time in the city. The city definitely speaks for itself, so if you have the opportunity to do so, then definitely come and visit!
