Plan your journey and parking

Maps and directions to Aston and Birmingham are available. 

Public transport

Where possible, we recommend that you and your visitors use public transport to reach Aston - we are easily accessible by train, bus or coach and air.


There is no parking available on campus, although alternative parking may be found a few minutes walk away at Millennium Point and in the city centre.

There are limited disabled car parking facilities available on campus and at the Birmingham Town Hall. If you or your guests require disabled car parking, you will need to contact the Graduation Office via graduation@aston.ac.uk for advice.  Please note that the Graduation Office will need make, model and registration for your car along with details of your blue badge.

Park and ride

The University offers a free park and ride service to the Birmingham Town Hall and back again for you and your guests.  You will be advised about the pick up/drop off points by the Graduation Office nearer to the day. 

Please note there will be a cut off time before each ceremony when the coaches will stop running

It is your responsibility to ensure that you and your guests arrive on time. Late comers (graduands or guests) WILL NOT be admitted into the ceremony as it delays the ceremony for all other graduands and guests.
