About Burwood Campus

State-of-the-art facilities in the Melbourne metropolis

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.

"I wanted to pursue Medicine and study at Deakin University since it is one of the best Universities in Melbourne. I went to Deakin College to study 1st year of the bachelor’s degree through their diploma since I had a study gap after Year 12 rather than going straight into university. I am very satisfied with all the study support I have received from Deakin College and now I am equipped to moving ahead to do my 2nd year of Bachelor of Biomedical Science at Deakin University."
