    Hey all! I've been looking into the accommodation on offer in St Andrews and I had a few questions that if anyone could answer would be a great help to me.

    1) How clean/usable are the shared toilet facilities? Is the £1000 for the en-suite worth it?

    2) What's the community like in the David Russell Apartments and Andrew Melville Hall?

    3) If going down the shared route, do they match you with a completely random person or is it someone who has similar interests to you?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    I was using shared bathroom/WC in Durham University ( I know it's a different place to St Andrews) but never had a problem with using or cleanliness except no one dared to use the communal bath - everyone took shower. The only thing to bear in mind is that at St Andrews I noticed the hot water has timings 6:30-10:30pm, which we didn't have in Grey College, or I never noticed if we did.

    Andrew Melville has an excellent sense of community, DRA not so much. I share toilet and shower facilites with seven other people and have never had a problem.
