Aston University

Student life

Aston University is a lively, diverse, close-knit community. It’s difficult to walk across campus without bumping into someone you know! You’ll find all you need at Aston – great academic, support and social facilities, and plentiful accommodation all on campus with a guarantee scheme for international students. And when it comes to nightlife, you'll be spoilt for choice, both on campus and 5 minutes walk in the centre of Birmingham.

Being a relatively small university it’s very easy to become involved in clubs and societies, all of which are run by students for students. With around 80 to choose from you’re bound to find a club or society to suit you, and if you can't, you can set one up!

Aston University campus in the centre of Birmingham gives Aston students the best of both worlds, a green, well-equipped, friendly campus in the heart of a vibrant city.
