Life in St Salvator's Hall

St Salvator's Hall, or more commonly known by its residents as 'Sallies', is a traditional hall of residence in St Andrews. Sallies accommodates approximately 190 undergraduate students. About a third of the residents are returning students and the others two thirds are first years.  Sallies is situated in the centre of town close to all amenities and offers great views of the North Sea, St Andrews Castle or St Salvator's Lawn. There is not a bad view from any room!

Sallies is one of the last halls in St Andrews which continues long standing traditions, one of these being High Table; every Thursday a small group of students are selected to attend a formal dinner in Hall with a prominent member of the community and/or university academic staff. This is a great way to meet other students and see your professors in a social setting. Everyone gets a chance to sit at High table throughout the year, and is regarded by past residents as one of the highlights of their year.

Due to the size of Sallies, there is a very tight knit community and a feeling of homeliness. The hall committee is constantly on hand for assistance and runs weekly events throughout the year from the Sallies Hall Ball, to quiz nights and wine tasting.

Sallies also has a fantastic team of wardens who are always available for a chat or pastoral care. Along with the wardens, there is always a friendly face in Sallies and Residential Services Managers, Kitchen Staff, Cleaners and Porters work hard to ensure that Sallies feels like a home away from home.
