Housing services

There's nothing quite like having a space of your own – especially when you're studying. You can choose to live on or off campus, and both options have plenty of benefits. We also accept bookings from individual travellers and groups for our on-campus accommodation.

Our on-campus accommodation isn’t just for students. We welcome academics, school groups, families and individuals to stay with us throughout the year in Burwood and Warrnambool, and for the summer months in Geelong.   

Library services

Deakin Library is the heart of the University. Our huge range of resources and guidance from our expert library staff will set you on the path to success. With extended hours, bookable computers and a broad selection of study spaces, each Deakin Library campus offers the ideal place to focus on your studies.  

Medical services

Students and staff at each of our campuses have access to an onsite accredited medical centre, with male and female doctors offering respectful and professional care. Our medical centres offer all the services you'd expect from a doctor's surgery, including:

  • managing and treating general illness
  • mental health treatment, referral and management
  • physiotherapy 
  • preventative health checks 

Student Life

Campus life

With locations in Craigieburn, Dandenong, Lilydale and Werribee, our learning centres provide study facilities and a range of student services to all Deakin students.   

Sports facilities

Sport has always been at the heart of Deakin, and is one of our greatest strengths. We have a variety of facilities across our campuses, including gyms, fitness classes, basketball courts and sports ovals.   

Featuring gyms with state-of-the-art Technogym machines, group fitness classes, social sport teams and stadium courts and fields for use and hire, there's something to help you reach your fitness goals. We even have an app – Deakin Moves – that includes programs, challenges and a workout tracker to keep you on track to reach your fitness goals.

Student clubs

Uni isn't just about books and study – you're also here to meet new people, try new things, share knowledge and discover your hidden talents. One of the easiest ways to make the most of your time at Deakin is to join one of our clubs and societies.

DUSA is your student association, run for students by students. DUSA ensures you're provided with a range of opportunities, activities and services so you can get the most out of uni life.
