Live, study and play at Deakin Res

Choosing to live out of home while you study is a big step. It's your chance to get out of your comfort zone, try something new and learn more about yourself in the process. Our contemporary accommodation options are designed with you in mind, to provide a safe and welcoming home for you to make memories to last a lifetime.

Off-campus accommodation

Finding your own accommodation off campus is a great way to immerse yourself in the local community. Deakin’s Houseme website provides a database of local rooms, houses and apartments available to rent, near to each campus. We also have an off-campus housing service that can help you with using Houseme, filling out rental application forms, understanding your rights and responsibilities as a tenant and more. If you're an international student wanting to live off campus, you should only start looking for accommodation once you’ve arrived in Victoria.
