Halls Life Coordinator

Alix Harvey

I am delighted to welcome new and returning students to D‌avid Russell Apartments and Fife Park. The largest University halls of residence, DRA and Fife Park are home to almost 1500 students. Although large-scale, we still maintain a fantastic hall community and spirit.

Deputy wardens

Andrew Simpson

My name is Andrew. The best view of St Andrews is from St Rule’s tower in the cathedral ruins. Definitely worth the visit.

Audra Ryba

Hi, I'm Audra, and I'm one of the deputy wardens at DRA. I also work as a research technician at the School of Psychology and Neuroscience. My favourite part of St Andrews is the water along Kinnessburn Road where you can see all the ducks!
