It has affected my experience in university but not that much elsewhere in the city. Aside from my 2 weeks of quarantine, I was still allowed to go outside and walk around in the city. So it’s only my uni-experience that has been different, so given the circumstances it has been alright.
There’s no doubt, however, that it has been more difficult to meet a lot of new friends, when you can’t really meet up with them. For most cases it’s been more in group chats like What’s App, Messenger and Snapchat than meeting and putting a face on them. I’ve become much closer with my flat mates and neighbors who I see in real life.
