See this article from Save The Student on How to make friends at university
Student societies are groups of like-minded students who aim to promote an activity, cause or an interest in a particular culture on campus. It is also the one of the best ways to make new friends, find others from the same culture and make the most out of your university life. Trying a new sport or hobby is a perfect break from the academic pattern of student life.
The Global Room is a social space on City Campus for students to relax, meet new people and celebrate cultural events. They also run a range of online events every week that you can participate in. For more information email GlobalRoom@dundee.ac.uk
