Making my way down Aston,
walking fast, faces pass and I’m lecture bound.
Staring blankly in lectures,
making my way, making a way through my peers.

And I need you.
And I miss you.
And now I wonder… Does my SU love me really?

Happy valentine’s day everyone!
I hope you've had a wonderful week, and I just wanted to remind you that your SU is always here for you in every time of need. Just drop by and have a chat with us about ANYTHING. We represent everyone, and you matter to us.

 Lots of love from Amna xoxo 

Do you have what it takes to run the Students’ Union (SU) for a year? 

Nominations for this year’s Students’ Union elections are now open.

Next academic year, a new team of four full-time officers and ten part-time officers will lead Aston Students’ Union. They’ll be the first group of Officers to start their term in the brand new SU building. One of those students could be you!

Full-time Officer roles are a great opportunity if you’re looking for a placement or a grad job – you’ll be paid around £18.5k for the year – and part-time roles are an awesome way to get experience of running an organisation alongside your studies.

 If you’d like to take part, click here and submit your nomination!  

Do you know someone who would make a great Students’ Union Officer?

Go to to find out more about the roles available, or email if you’d like to talk to someone at the SU about the roles or the elections.



Sports Clubs and Societies can apply now to be the CLUB/SOCIETY OF THE MONTH!

*£100 prize* for both! 

You will also get a little badge on your page on our website!

I am a researcher at Aston and I invite you to participate in my two research studies. 
The first one is just a set of questionnaires to complete online at 

The second one is exploring learning identities, with a particular focus on race and ethnicity, in the hope of generating new insights and perspectives on ‘attainment gaps’ in higher education. 

This study will involve taking part in a focus group discussion (approx. 60 minutes) with other learners at this university.

All participants will receive £10 Love to Shop voucher for their time.

If you are interested, please email with:
