Off-campus housing service

The on-campus student residences are in high demand and have limited places, therefore many students must rely on the private accommodation market to meet their housing needs. Properties located off-campus are managed by the Division of Student Life Off-Campus Housing Service.

Deakin University acknowledges the traditional land owners of present campus sites.
