- About Deakin
All students get a Deakin Card. This is your student card, and is the only accepted form of ID for students. You need to have your Deakin Card with you when you're sitting exams and borrowing from the Library. Your Deakin Card also acts like bank card - you can put money on it to print, photocopy and to buy things on campus like textbooks, stationery, food and drinks. When you've read this page, there is a question that you may like to answer.
Question: True or False: Off-Campus students don't need to get a Deakin Card
Answer: False. There are message boards and forums on DSO and they will put you in touch with both lecturers and other students.
The Division of Student Administration (Deakin Central) is responsible for issuing your Deakin Card, which is your student ID at Deakin. Off-campus students are required to send a passport size photo of 1024x1024 pixel photo to:
Locked Bag 20000
GEELONG VIC 3220
If you prefer to send your photo electronically, make sure it is a passport style photo and send it in JPG format to the following email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any question or want to ensure that you enclose the appropriate documentation, you should contact Deakin Central on 03 5227 2333 or email them at the email address above.
If you live near a Deakin Campus, you can visit any Deakin Central office and they will take your photo and provide a card at that time.
