Welcome Week is the BUSIEST and most exciting time during the university term time, a fun-packed period 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. Have a look at our theme reveal here too!

Are you excited to join? Head over to our Aston SU Shop to grab your Aston University hoody and join the community of over 18,000 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 2023.
