Due to current restrictions and to ensure we comply with government and public health guidelines, we are opening the residences for arrivals from 10am on Monday 31 August through to Sunday 13 September.

If you have accepted a catered contract, catering will not be provided until Monday 31 August.

Students will have to book a date and time slot which can be accessed via the e-induction on the pre-arrival section of the application form which is available once an offer is accepted. There are limited numbers for each date and time slot, so please ensure you select this as soon as possible.

To ensure students can arrive safely and securely in St Andrews, the University will be providing free transport to all students arriving at Edinburgh airport, Glasgow airport and Leuchars railway station. 

This will be available to all students arriving at one of these destinations from 24 August to 20 September 2020 inclusive.  

 If you are booking transport your accommodation slot will be allocated as part of this process.

If you are travelling to St Andrews with a family member who wishes to book overnight accommodation in a hotel or guest house at St Andrews in September, we strongly advise you to book well in advance as accommodation is in very high demand.

If you are an international student who requires to quarantine, accommodation will be available from 24 August, and you therefore do not have to book an arrival slot. Once you have accepted your term-time accommodation, please complete and return a Quarantine application form 2020 (Word, 43 KB)
