Parent rooms

Every Deakin campus has a dedicated room where you can change your baby's nappy, heat up milk or breastfeed in a comfy chair. We also have baby change facilities in designated toilets on each campus.


Our parent rooms feature everything you'll need. For example, our Burwood parent's room includes:

  • a comfortable chair and a highchair
  • a sink, microwave and fridge
  • a small play area for young children
  • toys and books
  • a lockable door if you'd like some privacy.
