The University offers a wide range of accommodation for its postgraduate students. The range of accommodation and its location throughout the town is one of the distinctive features of student life in St Andrews.
All of the University owned accommodation in St Andrews is managed by Student Accommodation Services who also oversee a small stock of privately owned properties in St Andrews. It is possible to view residence fees online.
The University has only limited accommodation for couples or for students with families. However, Student Accommodation Services, the Students' Association and local estate agents or solicitors will be able to provide guidance on renting or buying private accommodation in the local area.
There are a number of Assistant Warden positions within the residence system. The accommodation provided with these positions is usually only suitable for single students. For further details contact Student Experience.
