Deakin is a member of the Elite Athlete Friendly University (EAFU) network. The network consists of the Australian Institute of Sport and State Based Institute of Sport and five professional sports.

Deakin has signed an agreement with the Australian Sports Commission to support the integration of Australian elite athletes sporting and academic aspirations. Deakin, as one of Australia foremost sport universities, is dedicated to supporting elite athletes in their quest to integrate academic success with the demands of training and competition.

The agreement can allow some flexibility for athletes whilst studying at Deakin. The EAFU agreement provides a specific definition of an elite athlete. Financial support may also be available through DUSA via the Elite Athlete Grant program.
