Life as a resident

It isn't just what you learn at university that makes the experience so memorable – it's the people you learn with. 

At Deakin your new neighbours will be from all around the world, studying all sorts of different courses. With plenty of events just for our residents, you’ll get to know them in no time at all.

My advice for anyone considering university and living on campus is don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone – that is when the greatest experiences happen.



Every campus provides housing

We have hundreds of rooms available at our Melbourne Burwood, Geelong Waurn Ponds and Warrnambool campuses. There are also around 30 rooms available at our Geelong Waterfront Campus.
