All our accommodation rooms are en-suite located on campus and in the centre of Birmingham. You are only ever a short walk from anything happening in the city and national rail links. 

More on accommodation.

Aston University is in the centre of Birmingham and includes a national rail hub and international airport. Transfers from the airport take around 30 minutes.

If you would like to visit the campus and cannot attend one of our Open Days, the International Office can arrange a visit for you that fits into your schedule whilst you are in the UK.

We recognise that some recent media reports following the outcome of the referendum on the UK’s membership of the European Union have raised a number of concerns for current and potential Aston University students.

Aston thrives as part of an international community and we remain totally committed to global co-operation. We are a popular choice for international students and we recognise and welcome the important academic contribution and cultural diversity that you bring to our university. We are proud to have a diverse student population of over 13,000 students from over 120 countries who all live and study in an inclusive, safe, close-knit and friendly atmosphere, with many international student societies and faith groups found on campus.

Birmingham, like the rest of the UK, also has a strong multicultural community. We welcome people from across the world to be part of our city and together we celebrate major festivals from Vaisakhi to Eid to Chinese New Year.

Aston University, and the UK, will always be a welcoming, safe place to live and study and we are committed to ensuring that our campus remains open to students from across the world.
