Deakin is committed to ensuring the health and safety of our students, staff and University community.

Visiting our campuses

Campus life is at the heart of the Deakin experience. Following a further easing of restrictions, you are no longer required to be vaccinated to visit our campuses. While vaccination is no longer mandatory, it is strongly recommended.

Please note, students attending placements in high-risk settings where vaccine mandates remain in place are still subject to any vaccine requirements applicable to these settings.

We continue to monitor Victorian State Government guidelines to ensure our campuses promote the safety and wellbeing of our community.
