Welcome to Health Promotion for Faculty and Staff
Health Promotion for Faculty and Staff (HPFS) provides Appalachian State University staff, faculty, retirees, and their spouses/domestic partners with programs and services that help to promote a healthier lifestyle and a better quality of life. Major components of the program include health and fitness, preventive care, and outreach programs. Our facilities are available to all faculty, staff, retirees, and their spouses/domestic partners at no charge. Before using the facility you must fill out a Health History Form. We have two locations. Our main location is 12 Varsity Gym, the other is in Leon Levine Hall RM 253 (1179 State Farm Rd ).
Health Promotion for Faculty and Staff is located in Varsity Gym (building conjoined to the Dining Hall).
- If you enter the gymnasium from Rivers Street, immediately upon entering the glass doors, take the stairs (down) to your left (next to water fountain). There is a "Health Promotion for Faculty and Staff" poster, at the top of the stairs.
- If you enter Varsity Gym from the campus side, you are greeted with the Military Science trophy case. Go down the stairs (two flights), pass vending machines (on your left). Walk across the gymnasium floor (short side) toward Rivers Street. Once you are in the lobby, take the stairs (down) to your right (just past restrooms and water fountain).
