In the community @ Burwood

Located in Melbourne's south eastern suburbs alongside Gardiner's Creek parklands, the Melbourne Burwood campus is a contemporary, customised learning environment. The campus is serviced by a range of on-campus cafes, a restaurant, gymnasium and adjacent sporting fields and is home to Deakin’s Art Collection and Gallery all of which are open to the our local community.

Our community engagement activities include:

Research: Deakin’s Mobile Architecture and Built Environment Laboratory (MABEL) is a project developed in partnership with the City of Whitehorse. The purpose of the project was to investigate the existing aquatic centre at Box Hill and provide a sustainable and environmentally responsive strategy for this space to the City of Whitehorse.

Culture: The Deakin Art Collection and Galleries has established strong partnerships with the City of Greater Dandenong (through its Walker Street Gallery) and the City of Whitehorse (through its Whitehorse Art Space). These multi-dimensional partnerships include sponsorship, staff and student experiential and research projects and co-production and cross promotion of our major exhibitions. 

Corporate social responsibility: Among other community outreach activities Deakin University is a proud sponsor of the Whitehorse Business Excellence Awards. Since 2009 Deakin, via its Workplace Giving Program, has been providing assistance to key community partners. In the Melbourne region we are particularly proud of the relationship we have established with The Smith Family- Learning for Life (Melbourne).
