    So I e-mailed St Andrew's and asked when I should book my plane tickets for, but all they said was that they recommend I attend the introduction week.

    My question is, at what date will people be getting to St Andrew's? the 18th, 19th or even earlier than that?

    Most people arrive for the first night that halls are open so that you get settled in and meet everyone. I'd guess that's the 19th this year.

    I had an amazing time last year during Freshers' Week, so I'm really looking forward to it this year...(despite no longer being a fresher ) :woo: I'm volunteering as one of those Orientation peoples so I can't wait to feed the minds of the freshers with all kinds of nonsense! :yep:

    We should make you a great big TSR badge to make all the TSRians feel welcome

    To OP: I would aim to arrive in time for fresher's week, but only once your halls are open. I think that will probably leave you with the Saturday or Sunday before fresher's week. There is no problem arriving a little bit later than that, mind you.

    I heard a good one the other day - apparently if you have your gown on at midnight on the full moon it gives you the ability to fly, but you have to be careful if the moon disappears cos then you fall out of the sky!

    Think most freshers last year turned up on the saturday at the start of freshers week though there were a good few on the sunday too. Wouldn't advise leaving it any later than the sunday.

    Since residences open at 10 am on Saturday the 19th that's the earlier one can arrive and be allocated to the halls. I'm arriving on the 18th so that I can be there on time. I mean, I couldn't miss a minute!!
    Many people arriving from abroad, like me, are spending some days in Edinburgh as well before getting to St Andrews.

    I'm going over on the 19th since that is when the halls open but I suggest you check your hall to see when the warden gives his/her speech

    I'm flying up on the 17th. Looks like I'll be the first one there. :o:

    I just wanted to make sure I could sort out everything (bank accounts, etc.) before any university-related activities begin. :p:
