About Us

The Harper Adams Students' Union is run by students for students.

The SU executive team are annually elected full time Student Officers who assist in the running of the organisation on behalf of the student body.

The team will be out and about on campus and always on hand to listen and represent your views.

Where your money goes

The Student union organises every Wednesday night in the bar with each week having a different theme. By paying your SU fees it entitles you to free entry into the bar and reduced rates on events such as Christmas ball and summer ball. Money is allocated to bring in big name acts such as Danny Howard, Lethal Bizzle and everyone's favourite, the Wurzels. In addition to events and sports your student union fees aid the financing of Harper Forum which brings in various guest speakers from a number of industries.

Your Student union fees go towards the funding of clubs and societies. This allows for high quality coaches, new kit and the maintenance of equipment. Together this allows all our sports teams to participate in regular BUCS fixtures and arrange Agri blocks event with other universities through out the year such as Newcastle and Reading. In the past the student union has been able to help improve the facilities of the university for example the recent installation of a free cash machine on campus, the extension to the student union bar in order to increase the capacity of people able to attend events held at Harper Adams. As a student union we strive to achieve the continuous improvements to benefit student life at Harper Adams.

What we do for you

The student union is one of the main foundations of the university, with our aim to improve relations and create a united student body. This is done through the organisation and running of different events through out the year such as Christmas ball, Hobgobblins and all themed Wednesday nights in the bar. We offer a wide variety of clubs and societies ranging from rugby to polo, with numerous teams this allows for all abilities to participate in regular BUCS fixtures. Along side the traditional sports the SU helps to fund societies such as gaming and HOPS. By getting involved this gives many individuals the opportunity to try new sports and meet new people.

Not only does our student union benefit the student body at Harper Adams, but it also positively impacts upon the lives of other individuals through the aid of our RAG team. Last year RAG team raised over £30,000 for various charities, funds were raised through many different events. The main highlights being RAG week, RAG lost and the RAG mystery tour. With regards to the academic side of student life, regular meetings take place between the student union and the academic standards committee in order to voice the opinions of students in the hope to create a better learning environment.
