You'll find everything you need in the Faccenda student centre, the home of our friendly Student Services team and Students' Union.

Sports, clubs and social life

From Welcome Week to fancy dress parties, film nights, music, sports clubs and societies, comedy nights, day trips and four themed balls a year, the Students' Union works hard to make Harper life as fun and friendly as it can.

Most of the action takes place on campus, in the huge main bar, the cosy Welly Inn, the sports fields, the great outdoors, shared kitchen diners and communal spaces you can gather. Off campus you'll find clubs, bars, caf├ęs, shopping, cinema and theatre, recreation, YFCs, outdoor pursuits and places of interest. All events can be found on the SU website, so you never have to miss a thing.
