Military & Veteran Services

Thank you to all our (603) Challenge donors! 

We brought in $2353 in donations and are expecting about $1000 more in matching funds! 

While we didn't quite make our goal of $3000 in donations, we are thrilled to report that we did see a 784% increase in giving to our office over last year's (603) Challenge.  Our student study spaces and our conference room will definitely reap the reward of your generous gift with updated furnishings. 

Thanks again to all our amazing donors!

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 the UNH Department of Community, Equity, & Diversity, 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
  • Supporting the UNH Student Armed Forces Association, the primary student organization for student Veterans, Service Members, and other military-affiliated students
  • Coordinating a wide range of events for our students, including:
  • Veteran-specific informational sessions for opportunities such as the Fulbright program
  • Veteran-specific orientation for incoming Veterans and members of the National Guard or Reserves
  • On-campus appointments with VA representatives
  • Ice cream, hot chocolate, and pizza social events

UNH IS A YELLOW RIBBON SCHOOL

The VA is updating their website and does not accurately reflect UNH's past participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program or our participation for the 2019-20 academic year.  The update will be complete in late June/early July, at which time their website will show that UNH is and has been a Yellow Ribbon Program Participant Institution.  Apologies for any confusion and thank you for your patience!
