There’s more to student life than studying

Your university years are about having fun, meeting people and developing your own personal growth. Deakin University Students Association (DUSA) is your student association, run for students by students.

DUSA’s mission is to provide every student with a broad range of activities, opportunities, support and services that will help you make the most of every minute you spend at Deakin College - and beyond, at Deakin University. It is a fantastic way to immerse yourself in the Deakin University community and become part of the institution.

Whether it’s learning about new sports or hobbies, group travel within Victoria, or discovering hidden gems within the cities of Melbourne and Geelong, there’s something for everyone at DUSA.
