St Andrew’s College contains various types of student accommodation, from modern apartments with self-contained rooms that replicates share-house living to large ensuite rooms.
Rooms are allocated on the basis of ‘room points’: the more points a student acquires over the course of an academic year (by contributing to College and achieving high university marks), the better their room.
Most third-year, fourth-year and fifth-year students have ensuite rooms, while first-year and second-year students share bathrooms. However, all residential students of St Andrew’s College have their own room.
Students are able to inhabit their rooms from the start of the academic year through to the end of the academic year (they are not required to move out over the winter break).
