College of St Leonard

Refounded as a college of the University of St Andrews in 1512 by Archbishop Alexander Stewart and Prior John Hepburn, the original Hospital of St Leonard was attached to a nearby Priory. The buildings were abandoned after the union of the college with St Salvator's in 1747 but still comprise a complete group that includes a church and hall on the north side and a residential range on the south with a gatehouse on its east end. The chapel of the college is the old Parish Church of St Leonard which was reroofed by the university in 1910 and refurnished in 1948-52. All of the buildings other than the church now belong to St Leonard's School which was founded in 1877 and moved to this site in 1882.
