Before you arrive

Limited numbers

The University is limited in the number of places it can offer on a visiting day. Visiting days can be oversubscribed, so we encourage you to book early to avoid disappointment.

Disabilities / special needs

If you have a disability, or a special need that may affect your visit, please email visitingdays@st-andrews.ac.uk so that we can make necessary arrangements.

During a visiting day arrangements can also be made to meet with a Disability Adviser (email: disability@st-andrews.ac.uk) in Student Services within the Advice and Support Centre.


Guest are very welcome to attend the visiting day, but please note that as space is limited in the afternoon sessions at the Academic Departments, priority will be given to prospective students and applicants.

Lunch and refreshments

Lunch is not provided by the University on the day. Lunch and refreshments may be purchased from a variety of shops and restaurants within the town and University.

No luggage

For security reasons and for your personal safety, under no circumstances can personal luggage be left in a University building. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Accommodation in St Andrews

During visiting days, current students are in residence and as such we are unable to offer University accommodation to visitors.

Instead there are many hotels and guest houses in St Andrews to suit most tastes and budgets.


If you have to cancel your visit for any reason, please contact us on +44 (0)1334 46 2367 or email visitingdays@st-andrews.ac.uk as soon as possible.
