How to apply for accommodation

If you are applying for University of St Andrews accommodation, you will need to complete an online application form. 

  • Entrant undergraduate and foundation students can apply from 15 March.
  • Entrant postgraduates can apply from 1 March.

You cannot apply for accommodation until 48 hours after you have received and accepted an offer of a place to study at the University. This is regardless of whether your offer is conditional, unconditional, or an insurance place.

If you are applying for couple or family accommodation, or visiting postgraduate accommodation, you will need to complete a separate application form and email it to Student Accommodation Services instead; please see how to apply for these below.

If you are an inbound exchange or study abroad student, you can find out more information about how and when to apply for accommodation on the inbound accommodation page.
