All new students will need to come to campus to complete our enrolment process on either Friday 15th, Saturday 16th or Sunday 17th September.
At enrolment, you will get your UniCARD (University ID card) so that you can access university buildings. You will also need to provide your original documents (such as your qualifications) for your school to scan.
We will email you a couple of weeks before Welcome Weekend to let you know the day and time of your enrolment slot, so that you can begin to make plans to travel to the University. Please stick to your enrolment slot, as it will cause delays for you and other students if you do not.
While you are completing enrolment, our friends and family meet and greet area will provide a space for anyone accompanying you to get some refreshments, and to find out more about the support services that are available to all Aston students.
Check our enrolment guide here for more information.
If you’re going to be living on campus, your moving in time and day will coincide with your enrolment slot.
Our drop-off area will have a time limit of 15 minutes to allow you to grab a trolley and unload your belongings.
Our friendly Aston Auntie student volunteers will be on hand to help you move your things and answer any questions, and will then let you know where you can park up.
Once enrolment is out of the way and campus based students have moved into their accommodation, the fun can begin!
Welcome Weekend Festivities
We'll be starting things off with a bang from the moment our students arrive on campus on Saturday 16th September, with activities, delicious food and a festival atmosphere to match the excitement of starting your new life at Aston University.
Over the course of the weekend, we'll have music provided by Aston's AUX student radio, performances and interactive sessions from our student societies, fun and games organised by Sport Aston, traditional fun fair side stalls, giant board games on the lawn, and interactive circus skills workshops courtesy of Circus Mash! Because all of this excitement will no doubt work up an appetite, we will also have our very own street food market, with vendors from Birmingham's thriving street food scene serving up delicious foods from around the world.
