The School of History occupies three sites all within a few minutes walk of each other and all in the heart of the historic town of St Andrews.

St Katharine's Lodge is a nineteenth century former school near the seafront, the New Arts Building next door was opened in 2006, and on tree-lined South Street are Mediaeval History and St John's House.
