Feelings of loneliness and isolation

We empathise that it can be difficult to make friends at university but Arts SU can help. We run a range of activities where you can make new friends and do interesting things.

Sports clubs and societies

Our societies are a great way to meet new people in a relaxed environment and our sports clubs are the perfect way to get some exercise and join a team. Lots of people don't know anyone at all before they get involved so don't let that put you off, you can always reach out to a committee member in advance and introduce yourself before going along. All their details will be on the society or clubs membership page.
