Group bookings and short stay options for Deakin students and staff

Our university style accommodation is suited for Deakin staff and students and a wide variety of groups including sporting clubs, schools, conferences. Please see accommodation rates for more information including discounts available for longer stays.

I would recommend it - it is simple and stress-free! Everything is provided including basic cooking utensils, towels, linen. There’s plenty of parking if you have a car or it is a very easy pick up point for Ubers or Taxis. There’s also good access to public transport only a walking distance away.
