St Andrews has always had a community of students who live outside of St Andrews during their studies, including Leuchars, Dundee, wider Fife and beyond. We know that this has grown to over 1,500 commuter students in recent years with students commuting because of family or caring responsibilities, accommodation shortage, financial difficulties, pressures from the cost of living crisis, and many other reasons. 

Whatever your situation, Your Union will do our best to support you and include you in the St Andrews community, and that starts here-- keeping you updated with all of the resources available to you, and hearing from you about your commuter experience and how we and the University can best support you.
