LGBTIQ+ Inclusion spaces

Explore Deakin’s inclusion spaces

At Deakin, we believe in inclusion and we support diversity, including members of our community who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and gender-diverse, intersex, queer or questioning their gender or sexuality. This includes offering safe spaces at all our campuses.

Women’s rooms

The Deakin University Student Association (DUSA) provide women’s rooms for woman-identifying and gender-diverse students to relax, socialise and study in a welcoming and supportive environment. These facilities also feature information on women’s health and support services.
