Look for clubs and societies that you might be
interested in trying. You don't have to be an expert already to join, and you haven't missed
out if you didn't sign up in Welcome Week - you can join during the year.
If you're an undergraduate student, speak to your Peer Mentor about getting to know others
on your course or joining clubs and societies. If you are not sure who your Peer Mentor is,
contact your Department or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Residence Life team is made up of full-time staff and part-time student staff known as Residents’ Assistants (RAs). The RAs are returning students, who live on campus in University accommodation. The RAs will be a welcoming face from day one, helping you settle in and feel part of the community as well as being trained to offer support, advice and signposting.
Look for student communities that you identify with.
If you are still feeling isolated and lonely, you can speak confidentially with an adviser in
Student Services. You can book a welfare appointment by telephone, via email or in person by
visiting the Support Desk in your Student Services Hub.
