Private accommodation

Many students look for private accommodation within St Andrews, either sharing with fellow students or by themselves.

You can use Studentpad, the University’s student accommodation search engine, to help you find student houses, flats and lodgings in or near the St Andrews area. The website lists properties that are available to let directly from the landlords themselves and also includes additional information on how to rent and where to get information.

Properties on Studentpad are required to provide the University with copies of HMO licenses, Gas Safety Certificates, and Landlord Registration to ensure that they meet minimum standards.

There is a Facebook group Get a room, St Andrews and the Students' Association also has useful private accommodation web pages including information on local letting agents as well as a guide on how to rent.
