Studying at Aston University, the university is located approximately a 10 minute walk away from the main shopping, business and entertainment areas of the city. Transportation to these areas is brilliant with the availability of several black cabs outside the university on Aston Street, and a lot of Ubers in the area which are very responsive! Along with the main shopping area, Bullring, comes several food restaurants from Nando’s to Pizza Hut and much more! The choice for food is brilliant and the city as a whole has excellent places to eat outside of the main shopping area, such as Soho Tavern - an Indian restaurant/ pub! Shopping is brilliant at Bullring ranging from designer stores to department stores so be sure to be spoiled for choice! In terms of value for money, it’s brilliant for all leisure activities with cheap gyms a 10 minute walk away and the price of food is standard too! Nightlife is great with Pryzm, Mooch and the new Rosie’s club open on Broad Street offering student nights and cheap drinks most Thursdays excluding term holidays. Finally, people are spoilt for entertainment options with theatres approximately a 5 minute drive away, an Odeon cinema a 10 minute walk from Aston and the o2 Institute offering concerts from top artists, including other events.
