Situated only ten minutes walk from the University, Aston Brook Green is a unique student housing project for primarily for Aston University Students. It was developed some 35 years ago by the Union in partnership with a local housing association Midland Heart. A pocket of 52 Victorian terraced houses were modernised and converted to 60 flats. The project comprises, thirty-two 3 person flats, eight 4 person flats and twenty self-contained one bedroom flats. The 1 bedroom flats can accommodate couples without children or single students (postgraduates and final years are given preference).
The flats were converted and furnished specifically to meet the requirements of students. The only items that students need to supply are cooking utensils, crockery, cutlery and bed linen. All of the flats are fully double-glazed, have showers over baths and are fitted with gas-fired central heating with residents having complete control over when their heating is on.
The site has a token operated launderette with tokens available from the Union Shop. There is no shortage of parking on the streets surrounding the site. Aston Brook Green is well illuminated, covered by CCTV and landscaped with trees and large grassed areas.
Aston Brook Green has its own wireless network. Access to the network is FREE to all residents.
