Welcome to Military & Veteran Services 

Welcome and thank you for making the extraordinary decision to serve our country.  Military and Veteran Services (MVS) is the office to go to for any student using an educational benefit that is related to their (or their spouse/parent) military connection.  Students will make the MVS office their first choice in learning about those educational benefits and how to apply them to their college expenses. We are the primary resource within the university community for students using military benefits, information about programs offered, and to learn about opportunities such as the Student Armed Forces Association (SAFA).  The MVS office plays a central role on campus in raising awareness, educating the community and being vigilant about maintaining our status as a Military Friendly Institution. 

Attention 2017 Graduates: 

Red, White, and Blue Honor Cords are available for all veterans & service members to wear at Commencement. Please stop by our office during our normal business hours, Mon.-Fri. 8 am-4:30 pm. 
 
Please join us!  Veterans' Graduation Luncheon on Wednesday, May 10 from 11 am-1 pm in T-Hall, Board of Trustees Room-1st floor. Check your UNH email for an invite as well as RSVP information!
