Life in St Regulus Hall

St Regulus Hall, usually referred to as "Regs", is one of the smallest of the undergraduate halls, with around 175 students. As a result it is a tight-knit and friendly community, with a strong and positive hall spirit. Most residents live in shared rooms, though single rooms are also available. Common areas include a common room with television and sofas, a games room, a library and a computer room. Regs is a fully catered hall with a lovely dining area large enough for the whole hall to sit down together, which is fantastic when we have one of our regular formal dinners.

The student committee organise a variety of events throughout the year, including hall parties, karaoke, quizzes, and the annual hall ball. The Wardens host frequent wine and cheese nights in the library (a great excuse for dressing up in your academic gown) as well as more informal events. 

Construction works June 2018 - September 2019

Residents of St Regulus Hall are advised to expect limited noise and inconvenience, as construction works aim to enhance the St Andrews student experience for generations to come.

The whole St Andrews community benefits from the University’s vibrant music tradition that began with the choristers of St Salvator’s Chapel more than six centuries ago. Today, the University supports a thriving culture of performing groups across a range of musical genres, and students can opt to study music modules ranging from opera to electronic music.

This year history will be in the making with the construction of our first ever custom-built music centre;offering the full range of soundproofed, acoustically-appropriate practice, rehearsal, teaching, recording and performance spaces that everyone in our musical community can use.

The new building will occupy a site to the south west of the Bute building and to the east of St Regulus Hall.The site is also very close to the Byre Theatre, meaning that St Regulus Hall will soon occupy an enviable position at the heart of the town’s ‘cultural quarter’.

If you have applied for a catered room and have been allocated to St Regulus Hall (main hall), please be assured that the construction company engaged by the University have committed to avoid unnecessary impact on your experience – priorities include noise reduction especially during exam periods, the respectful attitude of workers on site, and agreed working hours.We will liaise with you, and with the construction project team, on a regular basis to ensure disruption is minimised.
