Short stay options for Deakin students

For 2021, we've opened up our new short stay rooms for Deakin students who only need a few nights accommodation while studying in Melbourne.  Whether you need somewhere to stay during an internship or need to stay near campus a few nights a week to attend classes, we have a solution for you.

Choose from a private, air-conditioned studio apartment or a shared apartment (non air-conditioned) if you want to get to know others during your stay. No matter which option you choose, you'll have your own private bedroom and study area, and linen and cooking utensils are provided.

What's the difference between a hotel and a college/residence?

While we're happy to provide accommodation to external guests when we can, we're first and foremost a home to our student residents. 

In addition to accommodation, we endeavour to provide students with academic, social and pastoral care and support. Also, no room service or wake up calls, sorry!

Is linen provided and do I need to clean?

All bedding and linen is provided. Service cleaning is provided at intervals based on the length of your stay. Please check with reception staff for details.


Smoking's prohibited on all University grounds and inside any University buildings, including rooms.
