Geelong

Deakin University offers two multi-venue campuses in Geelong, Victoria. Each providing cutting-edge technology within vibrant and cultural settings. Our two distinct campuses ensure that whether you're looking for a city-based conference location or perhaps a rural retreat, you'll be able to find what your looking for at Deakin.

Waterfront campus

Just an hour out of Melbourne, Our Geelong Waterfront campus is ideally situated overlooking the picturesque Corio Bay, in the heart of Geelong's CBD.

Originally built as wool stores in the 19th century, the buildings have been sympathetically renovated to create a modern and technologically-advanced campus, while retaining all the charm and character of its Victorian heritage.

With the integration of digitally-connected meeting rooms and lecture theatres to multi-purpose function spaces, the Geelong Waterfront Campus provides the perfect location for conferences, expos, meetings and training seminars – all within walking distance of the city's hotels and restaurants.
