Vice-Chancellor Professor Jane den Hollander today joined the Victorian Premier Denis Napthine and Federal Member for Wannon Dan Tehan at the official launch of the new $12.7 million, 102-bed student accommodation complex.
"Providing comfortable, affordable and conveniently located accommodation is closely tied to student success and a factor in attracting new students to Warrnambool and Deakin," she said.
The project has been supported by Federal Government funding of $38 million through the National Rental Affordability Scheme and a Regional Infrastructure Development Fund grant of $10.275 million from the State Government. This funding has also supported the building of new accommodation at Deakin's Waurn Ponds Campus in Geelong.Head of the Warrnambool Campus Professor Gerry Quinn said the new accommodation would benefit the campus and the local community.
