From whichever direction you are approaching Birmingham, Aston University is best reached from the M6 motorway and A38M (not the M6 Toll, which bypasses the city). Our road map (PDF) shows the Birmingham city centre road system around campus.
Our main generic address is Aston University, Aston Triangle, Birmingham, B4 7ET.
Please note there is only blue badge parking available on the main University car parks.
We offer a limited amount of Pay & Display parking on a first come first served basis. This facility is currently located in Car Park 5 which is located off Holt Street, B7 4BH.
Parking charges are £5.00 per visit and there are two options for payment:
1 - Pay & Display - The machine is located within the car park (coins only)
2 - Telephone - You can now pay by phone using the 'Whoosh' system. See the Pink and Blue signs on the car park for full details or visit www.whooshstore.com where prepay is available by using location code10008. Once Parked, when you leave the car park either from the pedestrian gate located in the far left hand corner, or the main gates, turn right. After just a few yards you will see a block paved service road on your right hand side. Walking up this service road will bring you into the heart of the campus. From the far end of this short service road you will see the 'Student Union Building' located on your right. Immediately after is the Large 'Main Building'. Continue walking ahead following the path to find the Main Entrance to the Main Building.
