Easy Ways To Meet New People At University

When you move to University it’s common to worry that you won’t meet new people at University an about how it will go. You need to remember everyone will be in the same position as you and very few freshers will know anyone else either.

It’s easier than you think and it really does just happen when it happens. Here are some pointers to help you along the way.

1. Leave your door open in your accommodation while you’re unpacking in your room, or hang a friendly sign on it. You could wedge it open so when people walk past they should talk to you or at least say hello!

2. Ask your house mates or course mates if they’d like to explore the campus or the town centre. This will give you plenty of opportunity to talk and get to know each other. You could also suggest stopping off for some food or go food shopping together.

3. Have a stash of biscuits or teabags for group situations – you'll be instantly loved and they’re a good conversation starter.

4.Add as many people you meet on Facebook – this way you’ll remember their names – sounds pretty basic but believe us, you’ll be meeting so many people in the first few weeks and you can’t keep saying ‘Hi mate’ forever, you need their names!

5. Exchange numbers with people on your course and agree to go to lectures together – this sets you up for academic as well as social success. You could arrange to meet them before a seminar and walk together.

6. Explore different societies – this is not only a great opportunity to meet people with similar interests to you but a chance for you to try something different.
