Private property letting

View StudentPad, our online accommodation database.

For and students and staff StudentPad is a useful point of departure for finding private accommodation in St Andrews. Additionally, the University of St Andrews Students' Association provides an informative guide on how to rent in St Andrews.

The University also offers some private accommodation through a Direct Lease Scheme. Currently no properties are available.

Depending on availability, short term lets in Studio apartments may be available at David Russell Apartments Tel: 01334 467100.  Accommodation is limited and we strongly advise all staff to make arrangements, as far in advance as possible and if coming for a short stay, avoiding the start of the academic session will significantly increase the options available.
