How to register for the Touch Pay card

Registration is simple and very eco friendly as there’s no paper involved. All you have to do is follow these simple steps:

New Users:

  1. Open the Touch Pay portal and select the "Register" option under the login box.

  2. Enter your surname and student ID number which can be found on the front of your uniCARD on the orange strip as per the image on the right.

  3. You will then be sent an email with a registration link to your Aston University email address ending @aston.ac.uk. Once you receive this email, click the link to finish your registration.

  4. You can then create your password to enable you to login in the future. We recommend using your Aston password that you use to access PCs and Email on campus. You can now use your surname and password to login in future without needing your Student Identification Number.

  5. Ensure you have your debit or credit card to hand and pay online through the secure payment system.
    Your payment will process and you will be given an authorisation message to say the payment has been processed. You’ll then be redirected back to the Touch Pay pages.

That’s the payment part complete, now all you need to do is activate it before you can use it in the Catering@Aston outlets.

You must activate your card before you can use it

When you register for Touch Pay, you may receive a message saying "You have no card issued to your account".

This simply means you need to activate your card. Visit the activation point in the CaféTierra food court which is located by the green LED wall. Insert your card, confirm your details and you're ready!
