Campus access and parking

Deakin is committed to providing accessible campuses and facilities for all users, including people with disabilities.

Campus access

Wheelchair access is available to the majority of buildings on all campuses. Mobility scooter access is also available at most access points on campus. However a wheelchair access point does not guarantee mobility scooter access. Access is restricted in some areas due to the steepness of external paths but there are accessible routes at all campuses. Most buildings are equipped with lifts, accessible toilets and some automatic doors.

We are continuing to work on improving the accessibility of facilities.


Accessible (category 1 council permit) parking is available at all campuses. If you are a category 1 permit holder, you will not need a Deakin parking permit.

If you have a serious temporary injury reducing your mobility, you be eligible for a temporary authority to park in accessible parking bays. To enquire about temporary parking in accessible parking email parking@deakin.edu.au.
