Deakin University has four campuses. The Burwood campus is located in a suburb of Melbourne, and offers students the opportunity to experience life in a multicultural urban environment with a population close to that of Los Angeles. Some consider Melbourne to be the country’s cultural and sports capital. Another campus is located in the bayside city of Geelong. Geelong has a population of 180,000 and is located about an hour train ride from Melbourne and about 15 minutes from the beach. The Warrnambool campus is located at the western end of the Great Ocean Road and is three hours from Melbourne by train. Warrnambool has a population of approximately 33,000 and offers a smaller town experience.
About the Area
Australia is a great place to live and study. Deakin’s campuses are located in Victoria – a vibrant and multicultural state. Victoria is famous for our high standard of living, career opportunities, wonderful food, culture and world-class sporting events. From Melbourne’s buzzing city life to the beautiful countryside, there’s nowhere else in the world like Victoria.
About Student Life
On campus, Deakin can help you get all the support you need for your courses or general well-being.
Your social life is also top of our priorities. Join a club (we’ve got everything from anime to basketball) or hit the town with new friends – we’ll give you the low-down on where’s best to eat and shop.
With three different campuses, the Deakin program offers a wide variety of disciplines and courses.
On-campus accommodations are available but are not guaranteed. Students are strongly urged to apply early to the program in order to apply for on-campus housing. Where students are granted on-campus housing, each resident is housed in single room accommodations and has phone and computer access. Bedrooms are furnished, heated and carpeted. There are shared bathrooms, kitchens, laundry and recreational areas. The residences have a common room with meeting rooms, kitchen, television area and a large open space for social events.
Living on campus is a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the Deakin experience. Join the resident community and get to know your neighbors from all around the world. Not only will you become part of a diverse and close-knit community, you'll be able to walk to your classes and enjoy everything the University has to offer with ease. Life on campus is so much more than just a comfy bed in a safe building. You'll be connected to a supportive student community and enjoy a whole range of exclusive activities across the year. This encouraging environment will ensure you're able to create a balanced study/social life.
The student experience is at the heart of everything we do. During any month, you might find our residents trying out yoga, learning new cooking skills, showcasing their skills at a Resi's Got Talent or volunteering their time in the local community.
