Making your way to Regs for the first time? Just follow the directions below if you are arriving by car or public transport (plane, train and/or bus). Even if you are living in the annexe, please remember that you must come to the main hall on arrival to pick up your keys!
St Regulus Hall is located on the corner of Queens Gardens and Queens Terrace, indicated by the pin on the map below. Queens Gardens is off South Street.
Arriving By Car
To get to St Regulus Hall, driving towards St Andrews from Guardbridge on the A91, go straight on past the large first roundabout as you approach the town (follow signs for the Town Centre). Take the second exit at the next roundabout, onto A915 City Road. This climbs a small hill, passing the bus station on the right-hand side. Go straight across the first mini-roundabout, following A915 City Road. Turn left at the second mini roundabout into South Street, passing under the Westport, a stone arch spanning the road. Continue along South Street, going straight over the two mini-roundabouts, until you reach the third mini-roundabout. Take the second exit (to the right) onto Abbey Street/A917. After 100 yards, turn right onto Greenside Place, and then bear to the right onto Queens Terrace. Follow this along until you reach St Regulus Hall at the corner of Queens Gardens. Note this route is taken because Queens Gardens is now one-way.
Arriving by Plane
Edinburgh Airport is about an hour away, and is served by a variety of airlines.
You will need to make an onward connections to St Andrews by car, bus, or train. There is a frequent shuttle bus from Edinburgh Airport to the centre of Edinburgh. These take about 25 minutes, and call at Edinburgh Haymarket and Edinburgh Waverley stations, both of which are on the railway line to Leuchars.
On the weekend that hall opens in Freshers’ Week, the University usually organises direct shuttle buses to St Andrews for students arriving at Edinburgh and Glasgow airports – check the University website for more information.
Arriving by Train & Bus
St Andrews does not have its own train station. As a result you will need to take the train to Leuchars station, which is roughly 5 miles from St Andrews itself.
Leuchars is on the line from Edinburgh to Dundee/Aberdeen, and is served by ScotRail trains in each direction.
There are also a few direct trains from London which call at Leuchars, run by LNER. if you are coming from London and catch these you don’t need to change in Edinburgh.
From Leuchars, you can get a taxi or take the Stagecoach X99 (or 99a/b) bus to St Andrews. The bus will drop you at St Andrews bus station. From here it takes a little over 5 minutes to walk to Regs.
From the bus station, cross City Road at the traffic lights, and follow Market Street until you meet a cross-roads, turning right into Bell Street. If you get to the Tescos on Market Street, you’ve gone about 25m too far!
At the end of Bell Street, turn left into South Street and follow it until a square with a large church on the left side of the road. Opposite is the entrance to Queens Gardens – follow this until the very end and St Regulus Hall is on the left hand side.
