The easy way to make new friends and expand your uni network.
Student Connect matches you with other students so that you can make new connections. During term time, you can sign up for Student Connect to be matched with others on your course or in your college. You can choose to be matched with one person or, if you'd prefer, a small group.
Outside of term time, Holiday Connect helps you meet people who are staying at uni for the vacation.
Students who sign up are also invited to bespoke social events - a great way to meet other students who also want to make more connections!
It has been a very good method for meeting new people outside of my course and outside of my flat.

Expand your network
Meeting new people from your course or college through Student Connect is as easy as 1, 2, 3.
Step 1: Match
Tell us a bit about yourself, your interests, and the type of person or people you’re looking to meet. Then, we’ll get to work finding you a match.
Step 2: Chat
We’ll send you your match or matches' contact details, as well as an activity guide full of helpful tips and ideas. Just fill out our contact template and agree a time and date to meet!
Step 3: Meet
You’ve done the hard work, so now it’s time to meet your matches! Whether you make new friends, discover another part of campus, or go to a different cafe, this is a great opportunity to expand your uni network.
Student Connect is now closed and will reopen in Semester 1 in the autumn
[It] was a really good match and we have become really good friends. Very impressed with how well this worked.
