KU Student Veterans Center

KU Veterans Service Center

The new KU Student Veterans Center (KU SVC) will be opening in December 2016. The new KU SVC will establish a “one-stop shop” for veteran services and addressing the three crucial phases of the student veteran’s university education: (1) transition from the military to the campus (first-year experience); (2) persistence to graduation; and (3) transition from the campus to the civilian workforce. This important center will be a valued addition to the support our Student Veterans currently receive at KU. For more information, or to see how you can help, see the KU Student Veteran Center.
