Lecture Theatres

Convenience is key when living on campus. Giving you the chance to skip the morning rush and always be on time for your lectures. The lecture theatres are located on campus, just like your accommodation, meaning its a 2 minute walk in the morning.

Tesco Express

We have a Tesco Express on campus. It's open 7:00 am - 11:00 pm, seven days a week. Making it very convenient for our students. Perfect for those weekly grocery shops or the occasional snack during the day.

Students' Union

Living on campus, you won't have to go far looking for events, because they happen on campus. The union's regular club nights or live music events are the place to be. No long walks or taxi fares to worry about.

Sports Centre

There's a sports centre located on campus. You'll not only have a gym next to you, but also, badminton courts, squash rooms and regular classes to attend here. Just pop in and see what else is available for you to get involved in.

Within the sports centre students have access to a brilliant swimming pool. Aston's swimming pool was build over 100 years ago, but after refurbishment looks better than ever. The area even includes a sauna room for you to relax in.
