The Aston University Campus, Birmingham City Centre
Aston University’s location is unique
Our attractive, green campus is set in the heart of Birmingham – Britain’s second city – just a five minute walk from its first-class social, shopping and cultural attractions.
“An amazingly green campus, right in the middle of Birmingham”
The Independent on Sunday
The fact that Aston is a green campus University situated literally in the heart of Birmingham, the UK's second city was one of the biggest attractions for me. Living on campus, you are never more than five minutes away from a lecture and have all the benefits of city life being within 10 minutes walk of some of Britain's best shops and nightlife.
