What's this all about?
Welcome Week is the BUSIEST and most exciting time during the university term time, a fun-packed week filled with meeting new people, settling into new environments, and celebrating the start of your university journey!
From your very first day, we’re here to help you feel at home; from finding lifelong friends, to hanging out with your friends at one of our exciting events or trying something you never thought you would, we have plenty to keep you busy.
Activities have looked quite different over the last few years, due to the pandemic. But after being back in action for over a year, we’re prepping for an awesome Welcome Week geared to surpass expectations! We are at the heart of student life in Birmingham and we want to make sure you have every opportunity to get to know the city around you, make friends, memories and ensure you kick off your time at Aston University in the best way possible.
Are you excited to join? Head over to our Aston SU Shop to grab your Aston University hoody and join the community of over 17,000 students! Browse around our website to read up on all the opportunities available, and don’t forget to follow our Instagram page to see what we get up to in Welcome Week 2022.
This Welcome Week...
Our designer has taken our students' interests to heart and created the theme around Welcome Week with you in mind! The theme this year is Games, which is why the shapes on a controller have been used to represent each personality mascot! The personality mascots include: the Scholar, the Creative, the Competitor and the Reveller. Scroll down to find out more!
