About Harper Adams University

Harper Adams' attractive rural location in the heart of England provides the best of town and country. With a reputation for excellence and innovation, the Shropshire campus offers state-of-the-art facilities and rewarding courses for undergraduate, postgraduate and lifelong learners in agriculture, agribusiness, animal, engineering, food, rural and land-based studies.

Campus information

We are renowned for the quality of our learning and teaching, which combines academic work with hands-on experience. From the state-of-the art Bamford Library and working farm to the Faccenda student centre, the facilities at Harper Adams just get better. A new molecular biology laboratory has joined our up-to-date science complex, the Engineering Design Centre provides all the latest technology, and a Companion Animal House has boosted our comprehensive veterinary nursing facilities.

The Harper Adams University is located in the heart of England.


On Campus Living

The Halls of Residence


Support for resident students is of great importance to us, every Hall has two final year Student Wardens who live in, and are a point of contact for all resident students. With a total of 16 Student Wardens covering an overnight on call rota, their support is always available should an emergency situation ever arise. Additionally, Student Services Staff, the Student Union President and the Vice-Chancellor are all resident on-campus and are contactable in the event of an emergency.


Our rural setting helps students feel less vulnerable than city living. As well as round the clock security, campus-wide CCTV, and card entry systems in every Hall, living on such a close knit campus is like being part of one big Neighbourhood Watch scheme.


You'll make lifelong friends at Harper Adams and most of these friendships begin in your Hall of Residence. There's always someone around to chat to, and because the majority of you will be experiencing university life for the first time you'll have lots in common. The cafes, main bar and lounge bar are always buzzing, there are lots of clubs and societies to join, sports galore, and the SU makes sure your social calendar is always full.


Everything at Harper Adams is on one attractive campus, so you're never more than five minutes walk from any of the facilities, be it the library, lectures, your friends' Halls, or the SU and Student Services.
