Healthy Living & Wellbeing

Moving away from home and living on a budget, can be very challening when your trying to live a healthy lifestyle, especially when you have a buzzing social life.

Here at the Students' Union we do what we can to aid you in staying healthy. We have many fitness classes that run throughout the year giving you that chance to burn off all of those callories that you have consumed.

We also have our very own Multi-Gym and swimming pool that will help you to keep fit during your time at Harper Adams.

The Harper Adams Gym

Here at the Harper Adams Gym we offer a well-equipped fitness suite that is being continually improved year on year. The friendly SU team are always on hand to provide you with any support and guidance you may need and our Student Services Support Officer for Sports and Societies is very enthusiastic and highly motivated by assisting students to use the facilities to the best of their advantage to improve personal fitness levels.


Harper Adams has an excellent counselling service that caters for everybody's needs. We understand that not everyone is the same, so all of our counselling sessions are tailored specifically to you, whether you just need a chat or a longer programme of support we can help you.

If you want to find out more information about the counselling service please visit the Harper Adams University page to find out more.

Students with Disabilities

Heading to university can be a very scary thing to do if you have a disability. Here at Harper Adams we aim to include everybody in everything that we do no matter what! The University offers great learner support for students with disabilities, all you have to do is ask for the help. More information about getting help can be found here.

If you wish to join in any social events, the Students' Union will do everything that they can to ensure that you enjoy every aspect. Head to the Students Union offices to see what help you can receive.

Sexual Health

For any sexual health problems, the University Surgery or Lindon Hall are on hand to help you out. For more serious concerns, the Princess Royal Hospital in Telford is only 15 minutes away.

If you do think that you have a problem, please shelve your pride - see a doctor; they've seen it all before and there is nothing to be embarrassed about.

Do remember, if you're not happy, please, please talk to someone - anyone - whether it's a mate you trust, your wardens, Student Services, The Students' Union or a counsellor at Harper. Don't be embarrassed - they've heard it all before and we really just want everyone to have the best time here and be as happy as can be.
