Parking

All-day on-campus parking is available for students and staff for just $6.40 and while there are plenty of spaces, they're in high demand especially in the first six weeks of Trimesters 1 and 2. Make sure you've got a parking permit – the enforcement officers are particularly good at their jobs.

Food and Shopping

Whether you're after a coffee or a lunch spot, some reading material or a new Deakin hoodie, you'll find it at your local campus.
