Social Networking Group

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

The Social Networking Group (SNG) is a weekly social group for students who, for whatever reason, are feeling lonely or isolated. It is a supported environment where students can meet each other and form social connections and friendships.

SNG runs every Wednesday afternoon from the Esther Parkin Building on Campus, and is facilitated by Hannah Moore, our Social Interventions Lead. You don’t have to attend every week – just when you feel like hanging out. Everything is always free of charge.

We do different things each week, such as arts and crafts, quiz nights, campus walks and baking. We also run occasional social events such as going for a coffee or having an evening at the board game café in town.

To sign up and receive weekly information about SNG please complete this short form.

When I started coming to SNG I had very little friendship with anyone at university. The impact SNG has had on my time at university is enormous. Without it and the amazing friends I've met through it, I dread to think how lonely I may still have been right now. Pretty much everyone I know well at university is from SNG or a friend of a friend I have made at SNG. I can't thank everyone involved in organising it enough”.

If you want to talk to someone about any element of your wellbeing please visit us on campus at the Roper Student Support Centre Drop in. Alternatively, you can email for further support via Teams or phone call.
