Food and drink on the Aston campus
We hand-pick the freshest ingredients to give students, staff and visitors wholesome food that tastes good and does good. Whether you’re relaxing with a freshly ground coffee or picking up a sandwich on the go, we’ve got whatever you need, exactly when you need it.
Café Libro sits on the right-hand side of the main Library entrance, offering the perfect escape during those long hours of study with a selection of Cafeology coffees, cold drinks, sandwiches, paninis, wraps, and cakes.
Aston's Food Court is located in the Main Building, serving international cuisine from six different counters and catering to all dietary requirements. Dine with us for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, or ‘grab and go’ if you're in a hurry.
We have a large seating area making socially distanced group work possible, so why not grab one of our Costa coffees and set up your next meeting here.
Located in the corridor of the Aston University Main Building, Eros Café is a dedicated outlet for vegetarian and vegan diners.
The Aston Meal Plan allows students living on campus to eat at Tierra Food Court including Costa Coffee, Café Libro or Café Eros without the need for cash.
