Learn more about one of the world's most liveable cities - the place you'll call home if you choose to study at the Melbourne Burwood campus.
The Melbourne Burwood Campus is Deakin University’s main campus, where around 26,000 students and 1,500 staff meet every day.
The campus hosts a wide range of facilities and services that are available to all Deakin College students, so you can be fully immersed in the Deakin University experience from day one.
With the city centre only 16km away, you can truly get the best of both worlds. Enjoy all the benefits of Melbourne’s busy metropolis while studying in beautiful architecturally designed buildings amid quiet green parklands.
As a Deakin College student, you’ll attend classes in a purpose-built centre in the heart of the campus. But you’ll probably spend just as much time in the campus’s many study and breakout areas for socialising and relaxing. It’s all about balance!
The campus is also home to the DeakinACTIVE sporting facilities, cafes, and an impressive library.
The best way to get to the Burwood campus via public transport is by tram. The #75 tram comes directly from the centre of the city and stops right out the front at stop #63 Deakin University/Burwood Highway.
There are a number of bus routes that travel directly past the campus, including route 281 which stops inside the campus.
There is also a Deakin shuttle bus – route 201 – which provides a service from Box Hill bus terminal and train station.

Deakin provides a free carpool matching service to both students and staff to help you find someone to carpool with. If you decide to carpool and are bringing someone else in your car you can use the carpooling car park.
While there are quite a few car parks available on campus, they can fill up quickly – especially at the start of Trimester 1 and 2. For short-term or one-off parking, use the CellOPark app. If you visit campus regularly, it might be best to buy a parking permit.
