Crime on the Aston University campus is very low (the lowest of any Midlands university) and our security measures and close-knit community atmosphere help to keep it that way.
Our team of fully trained security and portering staff are always on hand to help ensure the safety and security of the Aston community. Our campus is a safe and friendly place covered by extensive CCTV and security patrols. We also enjoy excellent relations with the local West Midlands Police, with officers covering the campus beat.
Birmingham has the lowest crime rate of England's eight major cities. According to the British Crime Survey 2008 has crime levels per 1000 population on a par with smaller cities and towns such as Cambridge, Norwich and York.
