David Russell Apartments
David Russell Apartments (DRA) is a modern complex of apartment blocks conveniently located near to the University Sports Centre and various science buildings on the North Haugh. DRA offers the feel of private accommodation, with the comfort of knowing that support and advice is available when needed.
Plans have been approved for a new secondary school in St Andrews which will be constructed in the fields between David Russell Apartments, Fife Park and Andrew Melville Hall. Groundwork is currently being carried out, before construction begins in late summer 2019. The likely completion will be in early 2021.
This page will be updated as the University is advised on the construction timeframe.
