Around 750 students call the spacious Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus home. Just a short drive from the incredible surf coast and Great Ocean Road, the campus boasts incredible recreational facilities and lots of green space – a beautiful place to have a truly unique university experience! Our residential community also enjoy the convenience of living only 15 minutes from the Geelong CBD and five minutes from Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre.
Living on-campus at Deakin is a cost-effective and convenient accommodation option and in order to support more students in having the opportunity to live on campus and thrive, we have significantly reduced our fees at Waterfront and frozen fees elsewhere effective July 1 2020.
