The Faccenda Centre, opened in 2011, is located at the heart of the campus; the building is designed to be a hub for students with essential services such as the Students' Union, Careers Service and Graze Café under one roof.

The building has a great deal of social space, with a large open plan foyer on the ground floor and open access computers to allow students to work and socialise in the same space.

Mr Faccenda completed the National Diploma in Poultry at Harper Adams in 1961 and has been associated with Harper Adams for many years since, supporting students with the Faccenda Award for the top industrial placement student in the poultry industry.
