Living on campus is a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the Deakin experience.
Fun fact: did you know that students who live on campus are better connected and more likely to achieve higher grades than their peers?
And this is just one of the many reasons to choose on-campus accommodation – from the convenience and awesome facilities to the instant and lifelong friendships, you’ll love every second of your time on Res.
The good news is that there are still places available at Burwood, Geelong Waterfront and Warrnambool, so if you haven’t got your Trimester 1 accommodation sorted yet, secure your residential spot now.
Please note that Waurn Ponds is currently at capacity, so applications for this campus will be on a waitlist. If you’re looking for accommodation in Geelong, we recommend that you apply for the Waterfront campus.
Immerse yourself in the Deakin experience
Life on campus is so much more than just a comfy bed in a safe building!
The student experience is at the heart of everything we do. During any month, you might find our residents trying out yoga, learning new cooking skills, showcasing their skills at a ‘Resi’s Got Talent’ event or volunteering their time in the local community.
Other top reasons to live on campus include:
- 24/7 staff and security
- close proximity to class and all the amazing on-campus facilities
- pastoral care and support from our Residential Leaders and other staff
- extensive orientation and transition programs
- diverse social and cultural activities
- no-fuss payment system (and no separate utility or internet bills)
- student leadership opportunities.
The choice is yours
Each campus features a variety of accommodation options, from state-of-the-art contemporary student housing to traditional village living. There’s single- and mixed-gender options, studio and shared configurations, amazing communal facilities, and different lease lengths and pricing.
To see what kind of awesome facilities are on offer, join Res students Anna, Warda and Ed on a guided tour of Brougham House at our beautiful Geelong Waterfront Campus!
