The University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL) is committed to supporting our nation's veterans, service members, and their families in pursuit of their education and career goals. Student veterans are a valued and vital component of our campus. We recognize and honor their sacrifices and value their life experiences as they broaden the diversity of our student body.

UMSL Student Veterans' First Stop

The UMSL Veterans Center aims to be the first stop resource for services including admissions support, GI Bill advising and certification, academic support, and networking opportunities with local military-friendly employers. From the initial transition into college, throughout students’ time on campus and even during the transition into the workplace, UMSL is dedicated to ensuring military-connected students have access to the resources they need.

The Veterans Center is not just another office. The 1,100 sq. ft. student lounge within the center has a never-empty coffee pot, comfortable chairs and tables, TV's and computers. Student veterans can study, relax, socialize with other veterans, or just drop in for a free cup of coffee. The Veterans Center is home base to gather socially or study - it is an indispensable resource for UMSL student veterans.
