Work on the brand new £10 million SU building is going perfectly to schedule, and we are on track to move in during Spring 2019.
You can keep track of progress via our photo album, where we regularly add new pictures with updates of key developments. You can also see what the completed building will look like by checking out our flythrough animation.
Recent key milestones include in the project:
- Steel Frame completed in May
- Main roof on in June
- Terrace and glazing installed in July
By the end of this year, work on the interior will be well underway, all the AV equipment will be installed, and the outside area will be paved and landscaped and looking gorgeous!
The services and activities currently provided by the Students’ Union make a huge contribution to the sense of community at Aston.
Students can get great academic representation from the Student Voice department, and we have a first class Advice and Representation Centre to support the health and well-being of our students.
The Union’s Clubs and Societies help students make friends, develop new skills and stay healthy. Plus we are home to the JobShop, who assist with finding part-time work and becoming more employable.
The new SU will retain the best of our existing services, but also add new facilities to broaden our appeal. The Ground Floor will provide a comfortable, welcoming social space to meet friends and grab a coffee. Plus, there will be a plush new bar, better facilities for clubs to train, and more spaces for societies to have meetings and social events.
We can't wait for you all to get inside and experience the amazing Students' Union that Aston students deserve!
