Thank you for your service

We are committed to providing all of our student veterans and their families with the highest level of support and dedication. The Veteran Center provides a variety of services and resources for you such as computer stations, study spaces, and assistance with Duck Tech (Duckweb, Canvas, etc.). The center is a space for you to connect with other students and be a part of a community. We strive to create an environment that helps you attain your academic goals and be involved on our campus.

There are also professional staff in the Office of the Dean of Students who can help you navigate campus and connect you with university resources. 


Programs for Veterans

Whether you are wanting to talk to another veteran on campus, find a peer advisor with UO PAVE (Peer Advisors for Veteran Education), or you are interested in applying for a scholarship, there are a lot of ways you can connect. 

Peer Advisors for Veteran Education

Are you a veteran looking for a community on campus? The Peer Advisors for Veteran Education (PAVE) is a chance for you to pair with a student veteran who has found their way at the UO in order to learn from their experiences as well as connect with a whole community of student veterans on campus.

Veteran Friendly Listeners

We have a network of faculty and staff who are familiar with the veteran experience and are safe resources for student veterans to seek out for information and conversations on topics related to academics, post graduation planning, transitions, pastimes, and their student veteran experience. 

Tillman Scholarship

The Tillman Scholarship supports veterans, active-duty service members, and their spouses by investing in their higher education. This scholarship recognizes the extraordinary academic and leadership potential in service to others. Members from every branch of the U.S. Armed Forces and their spouses are eligible to apply.


Resources

Veterans Affairs

The UO Veterans Affairs Office can help you with the benefits and aid outlined by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. It works to make sure that all eligible student veterans, reservists, and dependents obtain educational benefits in compliance with the procedures and regulations of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.


Support for Veterans

Our campus offers a variety of resources to support you during your time at the UO. The UO Libraries have curated a list of resources available for veterans and their families to transition to college and help them achieve their academic goals. The University Counseling Center and the Teaching and Learning Center also offer resources to support you during your college experience.


Find a Community

Having a community that supports you through your college experience is important. There are a variety of communities on campus including ones focused on connecting student veterans and their families and working to make sure they have a successful college experience.
