A month? Probably halls is the only option, If St.Andrews does offer private accomodation off campus it would be expensive i would imagine since its just a tiny college town. Its not like even a medium sized city.

Yea its very pricey, universities do this especially if they know there is no competition around.

Your going to need to get parental help. A budget of £4,000 is well short for that university, as there is nothing around it the university knows it has the monopoly on students. Also being such a small uni hurts also, as profit margins for investors arent there. Likely one of the worst situations for finding cheap accomodation, similar to London honestly.

Thanks for your response, I will seek houses in other cities like dundee or cupar, I have no one to turn to for additional funds, I will make do of what I have.

If you have a household income below 34k, you could have applied for an accommodation award (£1500) or bursary (£1500). But you may have missed the deadline now.

There are other scholarships still open, which you should definitely apply to. If you're looking at renting in Cupar/Dundee, don't forget to add in the cost of travel. You can get a discounted bus pass (https://www.stagecoachbus.com/region...-neuk/unirider) as a student.

There's also Guardbridge and Leuchars which are on the bus route and slightly closer to St Andrews
