Meet Jasper, the Library Therapy Dog in the Education Library

Join a Therapy Dog session with Jasper to relieve stress and anxiety from studies, assignments and teaching. In a group of 5 people each session, you can play and interact with Jasper, and enjoy his company at the roof garden in the Education Library.

It is well documented that therapy dogs can contribute to calmness and overall emotional well-being. Therapy dog programmes are being offered in many universities around the world, in libraries, university health services and student counselling units. It is hoped that these sessions will benefit HKU students and staff by encouraging less stress and anxiety by taking a break from their studies and teaching.

The sessions will be available on 18, 20, 23, 25, and 27 April 2018, at 9.30 am and 4.30 pm. Each session will last for 30 minutes.

The University of Hong Kong Libraries proudly introduces Jasper, a therapy dog.


Jasper, a nine-year-old English Sheepdog adopted from Hong Kong Dog Rescue, hopes to help current HKU students experience a better academic life through a new pilot programme to be launched on December 11, 2017. For three days on December 11, 13 and 15, students and staff of the University will be able to book a thirty-minute session with Jasper, to play and enjoy his company in a designated space in the Lui Che Woo Law Library in the Centennial Campus of HKU.

It is well documented that therapy dogs can contribute to calmness and overall emotional well-being. Therapy dog programmes are being offered in many universities around the world, in libraries, university health services and student counselling units. It is hoped that this programme will benefit HKU students during the assessment period by encouraging less stress and anxiety by taking a break from their studies.

HKU Libraries’ therapy dog sessions will be available on 11, 13, and 15 December 2017, at 9.30 am, 1.30 pm, and 2.30 pm. Each session will last for 30 minutes.

On Friday, 19 May, the Law Library entrance was bursting with dogs, students, and faculty, who came to join its first ever Dr Dog session.  A brief hour in the middle of the day, but well worth the visit, for de-stressing and a break from exams.  If you missed the session, play the video below:
