What is Touch Pay?
It's a quick way to load money onto your student ID card so you can use it to buy food and drink on campus.
How do I get started?
It's easy! Click the "Register online button" above, enter your surname and student number and we'll send an email to your Aston email address. Click the link in the email to complete your registration and you can then load money online with your debit or credit card. After you've added money to your account, make sure you activate your card in Tierra Food Court before you use it for the first time. Happy saving!
Why should I use it instead of cash?
Every time you use it, we give you a 10% discount at the till. It's our way of saying thank you for eating on campus. It's also a lot quicker, you just insert your ID card at the till and it only takes a second to pay!
What's the catch?
There really isn't one! There's no sign up fee and no lengthy application process. You register online, add money to your Touch Pay account, activate your card in Tierra Food Court and you're ready to spend. You can buy any food and drink at any time of day and you'll always save 10%. Over the whole academic year, that's a great saving!
