ENTRANT ALLOCATIONS 2016

Allocation begins in mid July for entrant undergraduate students whose offer of a place is Unconditional and who have confirmed their acceptance of this place with Admissions. Thereafter, allocations continue throughout the summer as and when final examination results are received and the status of individual UCAS applications changes from Conditional to Unconditional. 

Allocations begin in April for entrant postgraduate students whose offer of a place is Unconditional and who have confirmed their acceptance of this place with Admissions. Thereafter, allocations continue throughout the summer.

Once accommodation has been allocated you will receive a link by email directing you to your offer, which needs a reply within 10 days. As we have experienced problems with some email addresses not accepting the automated offer we advise you to also check any junk or spam folders regularly from July onwards if you have accepted an unconditional offer. Accommodation contracts are for a fixed period of the full academic session unless you are only studying here for one semester.

Once you have activated your St Andrews email account all correspondence will automatically be sent to this email address so please check it regularly.

We realise that starting University is an exciting time and finding the right place to live is important. With nearly 4,000 study bed spaces and a fantastic variety of accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets we are sure that we have something to suit everyone.
