At the heart of the College is the Dining Hall; a grand space with the capacity to seat up to 350 guests.
Decorated in the traditional style of the College, the Dining Hall is a magical space for functions, from formal dinners by candlelight to wonderfully presented buffet luncheons. Surround yourself with 150 years of history; portraits of past Principals, crested high ceiling, antique trophies and Psalters. The Dining Hall is fitted with a modern audio system and AV projector facilities are available. The room can also be curtained off for smaller functions without losing any of its majestic charm.
The Dining Hall is available on evenings, weekends and during the conference/holiday period.
The Reading Room can accommodate up to 50 seated for a meal or 80 for drinks. Set for a conference, the room can accommodate up to 60. The College can supply AV equipment at an additional charge, and there is no extra charge for a projector screen and whiteboards.
As its name suggests, original literature lines its walls, and a fireplace and portraiture add to its traditional ambiance. Its sunny position and décor make it a comfortable space for a variety of functions such as buffet meals, formal dining and conference lectures.
The Reading Room is available year round.
Junior Common Room
The Junior Common Room, the same size as the Dining Hall, features a bar, dance floor, audio system, self-contained kitchenette and adjacent leafy sandstone courtyard. The space is well suited for pre and post dinner drinks, celebrations and as a common room or lecture space for conferences.
The JCR is available on evenings, weekends and during the conference period.
More intimate than the Reading Room but of a similar style, the Law Library is suitable as a meeting room for smaller groups of up to 25 people.
The Law Library is available year round.
The St Andrew’s Library is emblematic of the grand Scottish castle style of the interior of the College, with a hand painted silk ceiling, grand stained glass windows and walls lined with antique literature is a unique space befitting to formal pre-dinner drinks.
The Library is available year round.
Kinross Mackie Chapel
At the architectural and spiritual heart of St Andrew’s College, stands the Kinross Mackie chapel. The Chapel, with seating for 120, is set apart from the business of College for the peace and spiritual care of College’s members. It is kept open at all times for prayer and personal reflection.
Since many past residents of St Andrew’s consider the Chapel to be their spiritual home, the College is happy to make the Chapel available to those who wish to hold services marking special occasions in their post-university life.
