St Andrews offers a wide range of accommodation – and nearly all of these are within walking distance of the town centre and conference venues.

Please bear in mind that St Andrews is a very popular spot for tourists, weddings, and golfers during the summer months. We would therefore recommend that you book your accommodation early.

Here are a few suggestions for places to stay:

University Accommodation

Outside of term time the University opens up several halls of residence as holiday accommodation. Agnes Blackadder Hall offers a 3 star bed and breakfast service with ensuite rooms, McIntosh Hall provides budget accommodation (shared facilities) right in the centre of town, and University Hall offers standard bed and breakfast accommodation (ensuite or shared facilities) a short walk away from the town centre .

We have a contingent of rooms reserved in University managed accommodation for the duration of the conference – if you book via, please use the code ACE10.
