Welcome to Deakin's Policy Library

Here you will find the University's approved policies and procedures.

Note: As a result of the introduction of new University legislation on 1 January 2021 all documents in the Policy Library are currently under review. To the extent of any inconsistency between any documents in the Policy Library and the new legislation, the new legislation prevails.
