On-Campus Connections for Veteran Students

Veteran students at the University of New Haven benefit from a number of connections on campus, including a dedicated veteran student group and space in our main building.

Military Veterans of the University of New Haven

This student group was formed to both support current University of New Haven veteran students and encourage a "veteran friendly" campus to attract new veteran students. Our purpose is to create a community of veterans who will use their knowledge and experiences to educate the university community and advocate on behalf of student veterans. We meet once a month to discuss current events and and provide new information. This is a great opportunity to meet other veteran students at the University, and support each other to take part in "change."

It shall be the purpose of the Military Veterans of the University of New Haven to create a community of veterans who will use their knowledge and experiences to educate the university community and advocate on behalf of student veterans.
