Feeling lonely? Make new friends through Student Connect

Posted on 25 January 2021

We know how difficult it is at the moment to be in touch with others and meeting new people to form connections.

By telling us a bit about yourself through our online form, we can match you with other students, usually from your course or college, so that you can make new friendships with other like-minded people.

If you're living at home or outside York, get to know each other online through Zoom calls and other virtual activities. There are plenty of things you can do together online - check our list for some ideas to get you started.

If you're on campus or living in York, as well as connecting virtually you could go for a walk or exercise outdoors together. We've compiled the best routes for exploring the City and campus to help you get out and about.
