Making friends made easy
Starting university is the chance to expand your network of friends and meet people from all different walks of life. You never know who you'll meet – that person in your social sporting team might become your best friend, and your lab partner might just become your life partner. Try to embrace every opportunity to make connections and step outside your comfort zone.
Joining a club is the perfect way to forge new friendships, and with more than 140 clubs and societies to choose from, there's something for everyone no matter what you're into. From anime to zoology, we've got you covered.
There are loads of ways to volunteer on or off campus. It’s a great way to get involved in a cause you care about and find other people who share your passions and interests at the same time.
Sign up to be, or receive, a student mentor. Attending special events and social occasions throughout the year via the UniMentor program will open you up to new opportunities.
