Short term accommodation

If you are traveling a reasonable distance, coming from interstate, or overseas, Deakin recommends that you stay in temporary accommodation for the first few nights in order to find a suitable longer term accommodation option. Many students want to immediately move into permanent accommodation and attempt to organise this prior to their arrival. This can be very dangerous and many students end up losing their money. The safest and best option is to organise a few nights of temporary accommodation for when you arrive, so that our Housing Officers can work together with you to find suitable long term accommodation.
