I have no idea how to make friends at my uni and I was hoping to hear some success stories.

    Go study computer science, find a bunch of nerds, realise you naturally click and that you’re all probably autistic. I’m half joking but for real, it’s easy to make friends with people like you. I’m lucky to be a programmer and there’s always someone obviously autistic in my team that I naturally become friends with.

    It doesn’t have to be programming but embrace whatever autistic-friendly hobby you have, from chess to climbing or whatever it is, something that attracts other autistic people naturally.

      I’m also a programmer by profession. Haven’t been as lucky as you with finding friends through programming even though I’ve probably been to every computer related Meetup or group in my area. Speaking of computer science, anyone doing anything for Software Freedom Day in September? I’ve tried the past few years to hold an event for it online and no one showed. Would love to do something for it, but it’s really not much fun doing it alone.
