Social Networking Group

A weekly social group for students who are experiencing loneliness, social anxiety or feeling isolated.

The Social Networking Group is a weekly social group for students who, for whatever reason, are feeling lonely or isolated at University. It is a safe environment where students can meet each other and form social connections and friendships. We do different things each week, from campus walks to film nights, and board games to cooking. We also run occasional social events such as bowling and going out for a coffee/meal. Our activities are decided by the group, and we welcome new people and new ideas.

You don’t have to attend every week – just when you feel like hanging out.

The Social Networking Group is facilitated by Hannah, our mental health and wellbeing project officer, in collaboration with a volunteer wellbeing ambassador. If you are interested in joining the Group, or you have any questions, please email Hannah on

Please note that whilst the Social Networking Group provides a safe and supportive environment, it is not a therapy group or a support group. If you are looking for a support group or 1:1 advice and support, please contact our Wellbeing Team who can offer this

From 12 January 2022, the group will run on a Wednesday afternoon (term time only) – exact times TBC.
