Barkley Hall offers affordable accommodation for students near Deakin University’s Waurn Ponds Campus. It’s an ideal living option in Geelong for young people who are moving out of home to study; there’s shops and public transport nearby and most places are accessible on foot or bike. 

Unlike other providers, Barkley Hall has all-inclusive rates: 5 cooked meals a week, internet and off-street parking. Another key feature is that it is uniquely safe: all residents have 24/7 access to live-in house parents (a Christian couple who provide help whenever necessary). So why live at Barkley Hall? Because it will provide you with the best start to living away from home, giving you the chance to build life skills in a supportive environment. Many people develop lifelong friendships and feel a strong sense of community during their time here. Give us a call about how we can support you – or a young person you know – while studying in Geelong.
