Discover “Space”: A New Horizon in Student Living

In the historic and picturesque town of St Andrews, known for its world-renowned university and vibrant community life, students have been facing an unprecedented housing shortfall, leaving many without a place in St Andrews to call home for the current academic year. The root causes are manifold, including an unexpected increase in student numbers and a growing preference among landlords for the lucrative Air BnB market over traditional student lets. This dilemma has left approximately 350 students in a lurch, creating a climate of uncertainty and stress as the academic year progresses.

But amidst this crisis, there is a solution for those that wish to stay in St Andrews whilst at University. “Space“, a new development offering self-contained luxury accommodations tailored for students, is set to open its doors in September 2024. Situated in the heart of St Andrews, Fife, Space promises a range of studios and apartments, from cozy two-bedrooms to spacious four-bedrooms, all inclusive of utilities, WiFi, and onsite support. But Space is more than just accommodation; it’s a community, with social spaces, gyms, gardens, and study pods designed to foster a supportive and engaging student environment.
