New College development
The University of St Andrews is to create a new college on the site of the distinctive Madras College school in the historic centre of St Andrews.
The former secondary school building and grounds on South Street were acquired from Fife Council by the University in 2021 and Madras College relocated to a new purpose-built building at Bell Brae, on the outskirts of St Andrews, in August of that year.
Major plans will see the South Street site redeveloped into a centre of excellence for research and teaching in the Social Sciences. Once complete, it will host the University’s Schools of Economics and Finance, International Relations, and Management.
The working name for the development of the South Street site is ‘New College’.
More information about ongoing works to give the former Madras College building a new lease of life is available in this video.
