Computers, web access and email

A computer suite in the Library

There are more than 50 computer labs across the Aston campus, many of which can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

You'll have access to a range of networked software packages, database systems, modelling tools and online research tools. and offer a range of specialist software.

We also have an extensive wireless network throughout campus which allows you to use your own laptop to access the internet and many University services.  

Many teaching rooms are equipped with ICT facilities for presentations, and specialist rooms are equipped with facilities to support research activities. An increasing number of events and lectures are also recorded in multimedia and made available online for students working remotely or for later review. 

You'll find all you need to know about using computers at Aston on the Student Computing Guide pages. 

My Aston Portal (MAP)

MAP is a web based system which is a single point of contact for many of the University services you'll use as an Aston student. On MAP you can access your personal teaching timetable, module lists, finance and accommodation information.

Don't forget to log on to MAP, Aston's student web portal, before you arrive, or during your first week, to complete the first step of your enrolment. Once you've done this you can access your student email account.
