To provide the highest quality service and support to Student Veterans, Service Members, and other military-affiliated students such as dependents, as outlined in the Veteran Administration's Principles of Excellence and 8 Keys of Success

As a service provider for military-affiliated and Veteran students, we endeavor to:

  • Remain vigilant in our mission to make UNH a military and Veteran friendly school
  • Be the primary go-to for any military-connected student using a military educational benefit or seeking support (academic, personal, or social)
  • Create a space where student Veterans can connect with and develop bonds of friendship and camaraderie with other UNH student Veterans and other military-affiliated students

As part of Student Life, we value:

  • Fostering a compassionate office space while maintaining the highest standards of professionalism, ethical behavior, and confidentiality
  • Networking with university, local, state, and federal organizations who may be able to assist, especially in a crisis
  • Ensuring we exceed the University's inclusivity standards as laid out by the University Commission on Community, Equity, and Diversity, which can be found here

In order to achieve our mission and fulfill our vision in accordance with our values, our services include:

  • Processing military educational benefits in an accurate, efficient, and timely manner in accordance with federal and state law, VA regulations, and USNH Board of Trustees policy
  • Providing a comfortable space for student Veterans, Service Members, and other military-affiliated students to study and socialize, to include Veteran-only on-campus housing

    • Veteran-specific informational sessions for opportunities such as the Fulbright program
