As Deakin’s second-largest campus, Geelong Waurn Ponds is known for its sprawling landscape and state-of-the-art facilities, including the Centre for Advanced Design in Engineering Training (CADET), the Carbon Nexus premier research lab and Deakin Medical School. It also boasts a fitness centre and brand-new Elite Regional Sports Precinct. Just 10kms from the Geelong CBD, and close to Torquay and the surf coast, the campus has extensive accommodation and easy access to the Waurn Ponds train station.
