Want to advertise your societies in or outside the library - for free? We'll help, whether you're just looking for information on who to contact if you want to book space, or if you'd like us to organise the whole process for you.


Only University Schools, departments and student societies affiliated with the University of St Andrews can advertise in the library, and requests must be sent at least a week in advance.

You can advertise on digital screens, in toilet stall frames or on the cafe noticeboard.

All images, videos, and posters must include: 

  • logos for your society/group/unit

  • contact details

  • and/or web address or social media

  • and/or text stating: "x society is affiliated with the University of St Andrews Students Association".

Digital Screens

Please note that images are shown in rotation with other material. Each image is shown for 40 seconds.


  • Send file as an image (.jpeg; .tif; .png etc.) not as a PDF or Word file.

  • Images must be landscape and exactly 960px by 540px.


  • Videos must be silent.

  • In WMV or MPEG-2 format.

  • No longer than 2 minutes.

Toilet stall frames

  • Posters must be portrait and A4 size.

  • Leave posters at the Library Helpdesk for the attention of the Marketing Officer.

Cafe notice board

Who can book and what for?

Student societies/charities/groups affiliated with the University or students working on projects for coursework can make bookings for the three ‘marketplace’ stall spaces outside the Main Library which are available for fundraising on a daily basis from Monday-Friday (two spaces for ticket sales and one bake sale). Spaces are not available for canvassing on behalf of groups or charities or for information, publicity or promotional stands.

For more information on booking space outside the library, check the library's page.
