Deakin corporate centres

Deakin's corporate centres provide high-quality, technology-rich, sophisticated meeting and event spaces.

What is a corporate centre?

From small meeting rooms to a contemporary 60-room lodge on rural parklands, Deakin's corporate centres enable the University to facilitate partnerships with industry, corporate, alumni, governments and professional associations.

Deakin staff can use the centres for:

  • important University profiling, liaison and alumni activities
  • industry-based engagement, consulting and research initiatives with government and the professions
  • development and delivery of corporate education, professional development and selected postgraduate programs.

We offer several catering packages, including morning or afternoon tea, working lunches, all-day packages, formal dinners and cocktail functions.
