Warrnambool Campus accommodation

Experience the peace and quiet of regional Victoria while living on campus at Warrnambool. Living on the banks of the pristine Hopkins River means that leisurely morning walks or a fish before class is the norm.

The campus is located on the Great Ocean Road, five minutes from local surf beaches and a two-hour drive from Geelong or the Grampians. Day trips to explore nearby coastal attractions, beaches and the local national parks are all possible for students living in Warrnambool.

Accommodation options

Warrnambool's self-contained studio apartments are all located in Hopkins View and give students a modern and supportive university experience. You'll have the opportunity to live in a self-contained studio apartment, while enjoying access to large communal kitchen spaces, a decking area with BBQ facilities, large common areas and lounge rooms, and multiple study halls – all under the one roof.

Note: Deakin Residential Services Warrnambool Campus can also provide accommodation to DeakinCloud, South West TAFE and visiting placement students or exam accommodation.
