Accommodation Officer

Hey there! My name is Jono, and I am the Association's Accommodation Officer.

Hey there! My name is Jono, and I am the Association's Accommodation Officer.

As mentioned, I am the Association's accommodation officer, and I am here to answer any and all queries about your accommodation worries and woes. Having now lived in this town for three years, living in both private accommodation and halls, I know the stresses that housing can bring. I am genuinely here for all of you, and if you see me (which, in all honesty, will probably be in the library), feel free to talk to me about anything; I will always always be up for a chat! If for some reason I'm not in the library, I will always be available by the email provided (srcaccommodation@), or my personal email, jd209@. 

As the SRC Accommodation Officer, I help represent student interests on issues of accommodation. I do this with the help of the members of the SRC Accommodation Subcommittee.
 
The SRC Accommodation Subcommittee is able to offer help to students at various stages in their search for housing, and can pressure the university in larger accommodation policy decisions.
 
The bulk of the work of the subcommittee is divided along private housing—which covers issues involving student flats and private letting agencies and landlords—and university-owned accommodation which includes issues which pertain to halls of residence, university-owned flats, and hall committees.
 
Halls of residence are key to the student experience and various members of the subcommittee focus on maintaining and enhancing the aspects of hall life that makes St Andrews unique. Meanwhile, they look for new ways to support all students living in halls. With regards to private accommodation, the medieval urban architecture of St Andrews puts lots of constraints on the housing market and is one of the main reasons behind strict housing regulations—Fife has one the strictest housing regulations in the whole of the UK.
 
This will all surely keep the Accommodation subcommittee busy. If you want to reach us, you can get in touch on the following email address or by messaging us on and liking our Facebook page.
