There are plenty of accommodation options for international students, whether you'd like to live on campus or off. We can help you find somewhere to live, and somewhere to stay when you first arrive.

Living on campus

We have comfortable accommodation for students at each of our campuses. Living on campus is a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the Deakin experience with the benefit of having your home just around the corner from classes and campus facilities.

Where to stay when you first arrive

Many students want to immediately move into permanent accommodation and attempt to organise this prior to their arrival. This can be very dangerous and many students end up losing their money and having no accommodation for their arrival.

The safest choice is to book short-term accommodation to allow time to personally inspect and secure long-term accommodation.

Finding a home off campus

Living off campus is a great option for international students. Whether you're on your own or with your friends, it's an excellent way to get to know your local community.

It's best to organise your long-term accommodation once you arrive in Australia. Our off-campus housing service can help you get set up.
