Accommodation for couples and families

If you are coming to St Andrews with your partner or family, there is a variety of suitable accommodation that is University-owned, University-managed, or in the private sector.

The University has a small selection of accommodation within halls of residences for couples; students with families will have to seek either University-managed properties or private accommodation.

One of the attractions of St Andrews is that it is a small town, but that does mean there is a limit to the amount of accommodation available. Therefore, applications for accommodation should be made as soon as you accept an offer to study at the University of St Andrews.

How to apply

To apply for accommodation through the University, fill out the couples and family application form (Word) and either email it to or send it to the following address:

Student Accommodation Services
University of St Andrews
Butts Wynd
St Andrews
KY16 9AL

Entrant undergraduates are not guaranteed an offer of couple or family accommodation, and priority will be given to applicants who are not already based in the St Andrews area and who are not in a position to look for alternative private sector accommodation.
