The University has made plans to build new accommodation at Albany Park and to build new student housing in the Grange area of St Andrews, which is currently University owned land located past Lamond Drive.
The plans for new student accommodation were passed at the latest meeting of the University court and project plans for each development are to go ahead.
Part of the University’s Strategic Plan, these housing developments aim to alleviate some of the accommodation pressures seen at the start of this academic year, especially in light of the plans to increase student numbers. They follow on from the Fife Park redevelopment this year.
A spokesperson for the University said: “We know that if St Andrews is to have a sustainable future the University, Fife Council and the Scottish Government must work together to develop new models of housing and rental provision in St Andrews and North-East Fife to address considerable accommodation pressures caused largely by the success of the University.”
