The Facilities Services Division is a team of trained specialists providing facilities development, management and support across all Deakin University's campuses.
We aim to deliver an outstanding environment for education and research that meets the needs of the University, its students, staff and partners.
We are responsible for the strategic planning and operational management of Deakin's infrastructure and related services, through delivery of the Campus Infrastructure and Utilisation Plan.
We undertake detailed analysis of the University’s space requirements, including campus learning spaces, staff accommodation, student support and research and feed this into capital projects as well as minor refurbishments. We aim to ensure the University’s extensive building spaces are being used as optimally as possible, whilst supporting the strategic directions of all Faculties and Portfolios. Ensuring that the University has access to the right amount and type of space to meet both current and projected requirements drives productive partnerships with all areas of Facilities as well as Faculties and Portfolios.
We manage the design and delivery of new buildings and facilities that meet the University's long term needs.
