St Andrews school site subject of student flats plans

The former Kilrymont High School in St Andrews is to be converted into student flats.

The building was bought in 2021 by the operators of the Scotsman Hotel in Edinburgh and will now become a selection of self-contained studios and shared apartments for students.

The developers of SPACE St Andrews say the development “aims to address an acute shortage of student accommodation in the town”.

The team behind SPACE have released the first phase of their August 2024 capacity, with a full selection of studios and apartments available to reserve, the Herald reports.

The redevelopment of the B-listed former high school will see the three-storey building repurposed to offer six different room types, as well as expansive areas for socialising, studying and recreation.

A spokesperson for the team said: “We believe students need more than a room to call home and therefore we are developing a property that has shared communal spaces that will offer all students a place to go to socialise in the communal hubs, study within the library or private study pods, entertain friends within a private kitchen dining room or keep fit and active in the gym.”
