Did you know that Waurn Ponds Estate offers short-term accommodation for Deakin staff and guests to the University?

In addition to our modern rooms, there are plenty of reasons why you should either consider staying at the Estate yourself or organise accommodation for a special Deakin guest.

Here are 4 reasons why Waurn Ponds Estate makes a convenient option for accommodation for Deakin staff visiting our Geelong campuses.
