The University of St Andrews has appointed the Scottish architectural firm Sheppard Robson to design the next generation of student accommodation for the university.

The project is for designs related to the £62 million Albany Park development, which will be delivered by Campus Living Villages. It will also include the design of a new high-quality, modern conference facility as well as several additional complementary student facilities.

The campus will be constructed to a BREEAM 'excellent' standard and is expected to be completed by July 2020.

The student accommodation will consist of a mix of studio, and cluster flats with some equipped with en-suite facilities.

Albany Park is part of an ongoing programme by the University of St Andrews to build upon and improve its accommodation for its growing student population.

Commenting on the project, Adam McGhee, Parter at Sheppard Robson, said: "Sheppard Robson is delighted to be working with The University of St Andrews and Campus Living Villages to deliver this exciting project. This development will cement the University's status as a world-leading place of study and will support future growth by providing facilities that will be an attractive choice for students from around the world.

"The vision for the design from the outset will be to deliver high-quality student residential facilities that focus on the student experience together with providing first class support facilities for the students to enjoy."
