Coping with Loneliness
Even when we’re not social distancing, it’s completely normal to feel lonely at University, especially if you’ve moved far from home. Students shared their experiences and some of their top tips with us on how to cope with loneliness. Remember, The Advice Centre are here to support you, and you can join the SUSU Online Community group to keep in touch with your wider student community.
