Welcome to Student Veteran Services
Stop by the Virtual Student Veteran Center
Although our physical office is closed during the COVID-19 pandemic, you may still reach Student Veteran Services using videoconferencing or phone through Zoom. All UT Austin students get started with Zoom at UT by visiting zoom.its.utexas.edu.
You can join us in the Virtual Student Veteran Center by:
- Joining our Zoom Meeting Room during normal business hours (Monday-Friday, 8 a.m – 5 p.m. CST).
- Calling in at (346) 248-7799 (meeting ID 808 856 380) during normal business hours (Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. CST). Outside the U.S.? Find your local number.
You will be placed into the 'Waiting Room' if we are helping another student, but we will be with you as soon as possible.
The tools to make our services available virtually are new to us, and we ask for your patience in the event something doesn't work quite the way it is supposed to. We are all exploring this uncharted territory together.
Who We Are
We help all students using federal and state veterans education benefits. We walk current and prospective students through the benefits application and certification process, provide veteran-centered academic support, career services, health care and wellness resources and support the ongoing success of veterans on campus.
Sharing our expert knowledge of federal and state veterans education benefits is a priority of our office, along with connecting students to grants and scholarships specific to our campus.
We help student veterans develop their resumes, and connect them to internships and employers.
Our team offers free tutoring, academic counseling, peer coaching and mentoring both in our office and employing student veteran tutors in the Sanger Learning Center and in the Undergraduate Writing Center.
Health Care and Wellness
We have an on-site, full time Veteran Affairs counselor who specializes in counseling for post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, sleep problems and anxiety. Our counselor also helps with VA healthcare enrollment, disability documentation for accommodations and coordinating medical and mental health care at local VA facilities.
Campus and Community Outreach
In the military, we all recognized that we were only as strong as the community and support we have around us. We connect students to campus opportunities, the Student Veteran Association and the Veteran Advisor Council. Be a part of our thriving veteran community.
