Aston University Campus

Our self-contained campus gives Aston University students the best of both worlds: a green, well-equipped, friendly campus in the heart of a vibrant city.

All our social, support and academic facilities are based on campus, so you never have far to go.

Aston University is less than five minutes walk from Birmingham city centre and its many shops, restaurants, galleries, theatres, cinemas, pubs and clubs.
