Almost forty years after the erection of the University of St. Andrews, the famous Bishop James Kennedy founded the first of its colleges and dedicated it to St. Salvator, the Holy Saviour. His donation was confirmed by Pope Nicholas V in 1451 and again, with some alterations and improvements, in 1456. In 1465, fifteen years after the beginnings of St. Salvator's, the founder-bishop was buried within the building he had erected, and his tomb still stands, not only as a monument tcf himself, but also, as a precious specimen of the artistic skill of the fifteenth century.
The chapel is almost unique among college churches in being situated on the outside of the quadrangle, with an entrance that now opens on the street; it was probably intended for general, as well as for undergraduate, use. Its revenues were designed for the support of thirteen students and masters, after the number:of the disciples with Jesus. The massive tower which serves as a landmark to travellers by land and sea was both a belfry and a gate-house ; the famous bell which Bishop Kennedy had cast in 1460, and to which he had given the name of ' Katherine ', was recast in 1609 and 1686 and has led to the legend of his niece ' Kate Kennedy ' in whose honour an annual procession is still held by the students.
The Chapel was successively used by Roman Catholics, Presbyterians, Episcopalians, and by Presbyterians again, and for some time it served as a commissary court. In 1759 the congregation of St. Leonard's Church were given the privilege of using the building as their parish church, but in 1904 it was resumed by the University and since then services have been regularly held during the session for the students of the University.
