- About Deakin
Student Rovers are Deakin students who have been studying for at least 12 months. They are keen to help other students settle in during the first busy weeks of university life.
Student Rovers can help you with general Library and IT related information. You can find them in the Library learning spaces and selected IT laboratories during the start of Trimesters 1 and 2. It's not hard to 'spot' a Student Rover - simply look for their bright red shirts with 'I'm here to help' on the back.
If a Student Rover can't help you, they will refer you to someone who can!
The Student Rover service hours may vary slightly from campus to campus (in response to individual campus needs).
Student Rovers help other Deakin students with general Library and IT enquiries. They conduct Library tours during Orientation and providing assistance during the first few weeks of the academic year from the Library's learning spaces, during Trimesters 1 and 2.
Any student who is on-campus and has a Library or IT related query about using or accessing these services.
If there are no Student Rovers on duty, you can visit the Current Students Services and Facilities website and look under 'IT and Computer support' or the visit the Library website and look under 'Help'. Both of these sites have extensive information to help with your study at Deakin.

Student Rovers can also help you find the answers to questions, such as:
Student Rovers will refer you to the appropriate University staff or service when required.
Student Rovers aren't able to help you with your assignment work - but there are expert staff in Student Life who can help you with assignment skills and preparation, or perhaps talk to your tutor or lecturer.
Recruitment for the following year commences late July each year, with jobs advertised through JobShop and a variety of electronic channels.
