Utilities & More:
The computer room is located on G Floor, next to the exit of the back stairwell. You can use this room 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is also the study room, with a number of desks – it gets very busy during the exam season! It contains six networked computers with USB ports and a laser printer. You require your St Andrews username and password to use these computers, just like any others around the university. You need to purchase printer credits if you wish to print things out, though new students are given fifty free credits at the start of the year. More can then be bought from the Library I.T. Services Help Desk or via the university website. If there is a problem with either the printer or a computer, notify the Residence Managers. WiFi and socket ports are available in every room.
The laundry room is in the basement, and accessible either from the lobby or one of the back staircases. A textual description of the route is not very useful, but you should be shown the location on the first night you arrive. There are 3 washing machines and 3 dryers. There is also a drying room in both the annexe and main hall to hang clothes should you not wish to use the dryers. These washing machines and dryers live in some form of warped time-zone; when they say “37 minutes remaining” you can expect to wait at least 45-50. They are run and maintained by an external company, so if there is a problem report it to the Residence Manager and they will get it sorted A.S.A.P.
The bike shed is underneath G-floor in the main building, on the side closest to the Bute Medical Centre. Access with bikes is down the ramp from Queens Terrace, though from within hall you can get there through the stairwell on that side of the building. You can get a bike shed key from the Residence Managers in return for a deposit which is reclaimable at the end of the year. There is also a bike shed in the annexe, located on the “light-side” (right hand side) of the building just past the main kitchen.
Regs has access to three gardens, one behind the Annexe, one attached to main hall and a plot across the road. We used to have a secret garden too, but access has unfortunately been blocked.
Regs also has luggage lockers for use during term time.
