It's been an incredible week...and it's not over yet!

Friday morning will be your last chance to grab a free breakfast in the Living Room, 9am - 11am. Then, later that day, we have:

Keeping ahead of anxiety and low mood in MB404c (2-2:45pm)

There are still some 3- and 4-bedroom flats available at Aston Brook Green.   ABG is less than 10 minutes walk from campus and is managed by your Students’ Union.   With rents of £59.50 per week for a room in a shared flat of 3 or 4 people, this has to be the cheapest accommodation you will find within walking distance of campus.

A viewing of the site and a three bedroom flat has been arranged for Wednesday 14th February.  Meet on the Union steps at 1.00pm and you will be shown down to ABG by a current resident.

 Please see https://www.astonsu.com/housing/abg/ for further information.  For application forms go to https://www.astonsu.com/housing/abg/applications/

LIBRARY REFRESH PROJECT

Over the summer of 2017, the Library underwent some major improvements. We increased study spaces with 200 + more seats and created an extra seating area on the Ground Floor.

We also introduced study booths and a postgraduate study room. The high bench under the window was extended and the self-service facilities were relocated to create extra seating space.

If you’ve got any comments about the Library we would welcome your feedback.  Email: library@aston.ac.uk
