Getting to Deakin
Before you intend to travel in, take some time to plan your journey to campus. There are plenty of convenient transport options for you to choose from! Driving isn’t the only way to get to campus and choosing an alternative can help you to save money and time, and ensure that your trip is smooth and stress-free.
- Geelong inter-campus bus: The inter-campus bus is still operating between the Waterfront and Waurn Ponds campuses and offers you a free and convenient commute. Please note Deakin’s express bus service to the Waterfront campus (which departs from the Try Boys Basketball Stadium and travels to the Waterfront campus in a loop) isn’t currently operating.
- Public transport: There are several options when it comes to catching public transport to our campuses. All Deakin campuses are conveniently located near train, tram or bus stops and are easily accessible from almost anywhere you may live. Check out Public Transport Victoria (PTV) to plan your journey and for advice on how to travel safely while we’re observing COVID-19 physical distancing measures. They even have specific details on how to get to and from our Burwood, Waurn Ponds and Waterfront campuses.
- Driving: If you need to drive to campus, please note parking fees have been waived for T2/S2 until further notice.
- Walking or cycling: If you live reasonably close to campus, walking or cycling are great options that benefit your health and the environment. We have beautiful, green campuses that are best experienced on foot or two wheels, so give active transport a go if it’s an option.
