Housing services

There's nothing quite like having a space of your own – especially when you're studying. You can choose to live on or off campus, and both options have plenty of benefits. We also accept bookings from individual travellers and groups for our on-campus accommodation.

Our on-campus accommodation isn’t just for students. We welcome academics, school groups, families and individuals to stay with us throughout the year in Burwood and Warrnambool, and for the summer months in Geelong.

With extended hours, bookable computers and a broad selection of study spaces, each Deakin Library campus offers the ideal place to focus on your studies.

Medical services

Students and staff at each of our campuses have access to an onsite accredited medical centre, with male and female doctors offering respectful and professional care. Our medical centres offer all the services you'd expect from a doctor's surgery, including:

  • managing and treating general illness

  • physiotherapy
  • preventative health checks
