Whitehorn Hall
Entrance to Whitehorn

Conference accommodation will be offered at Whitehorn residence, which Rhiannon confirms to be a 13-minute brisk walk from St Salvator’s Quadrangle on North St, where most of the conference will be held. The Bed & Breakfast rate for these ensuite rooms will be £59/night, which is superb value for St Andrews in summer season.

Breakfast is served in the dining room of University Hall, immediately adjacent to Whitehorn.

TO BOOK follow the link below. In the top bar, enter your check-in and check-out dates and the number of rooms required; click on ‘Search’ (note that if you omit the ‘Search’ step it sometimes defaults to the single night of 18 July). Then use the ‘Book room(s)’ buttons next to the type of room you want. Rooms at the  discounted conference rate are set aside for Scoticonference delegates from 18-23 July inclusive.


Rooms are set aside for Scoticonference delegates from 18-23 July inclusive: you can book as many or as few individual nights as you wish within these dates. If you wish to arrive earlier or stay later than the conference dates, you should be able to search for university accommodation on the same booking page by cancelling the Scoticonference promo code (which will only show rooms available 18-23 July) next to the ‘Search’ button. Note that university accommodation outwith the conference dates will only be available at regular prices.

Double Rooms: Whitehorn has only single-occupancy rooms, but a limited numbers of double or twin rooms has been set aside for Scoticonference delegates at Agnes Blackadder Hall, £77/night per room for an ensuite double B&B (2 persons) or  £109/night for an ensuite twin room containing 2 double beds B&B (max. 4 persons occupancy). All of these options should be listed on the booking page reached by the link above. Agnes Blackadder Hall is still only about a 15 minute brisk walk to St Salvator’s Quad (or a 7-minute walk up the hill to Whitehorn).

Alternative accommodation

For those preferring to make their own accommodation arrangements and who do not have a convenient local friend to stay with, St Andrews is full of hotels and bed & breakfasts (see for example or ) as well as holiday properties let through companies such as AirBnB or Vrbo.

Bear in mind that St Andrews is an extremely popular tourist destination during the golf-friendly summer months, so availability is likely to be very low and prices high.
