Scotland's first University Scheme Masonic Lodge

Freemasonry, in lodges under the auspices of the Grand Lodge of Scotland, is open to any man able to profess a belief in a Supreme Being and who demonstrates high moral values.

Whilst not a requirement, many candidates for admission to St. David (University Lodge) No. 36 have a connection with a Scottish university. Under the Scottish University Lodge Scheme, our lodge enjoys certain dispensations:

  • to waive the normal age requirement of 21 years and regularly admits candidates from the age of 18
  • to admit candidates who have not been ordinarily resident in the vicinity of the lodge for a period of three years
  • to reduce by half the joining fee for a candidate in full-time education
