Veterans family and support


Welcome to the Veterans Center

During your time at Iowa State University, you will find a home at the Veterans Center. Our mission is to strengthen the lives of Veterans, military personnel, their families and our community.

You will find the Veterans Center to be a place where you can go for Veteran-related questions and to connect with others in forming a greater sense of camaraderie around a shared common experience. We are here to help with the unique challenges associated with transitioning into a university setting.

The Center is located in the Col. Pride Veterans Lounge on the second floor of the Memorial Union and offers an area for students to study, eat, and relax with each other. We are generally open 9:00am - 5:00pm Monday through Friday.
