Veteran Services helps student veterans transition into civilian life, as they learn more about balancing college with other life obligations.
We are proud of those who have served. Meet some of our UB Veterans:
Help ensure we continue to offer important programs and services for our students by considering a gift to our Veteran Services Fund.
Get the support you need and the benefits you deserve. We’re here to help student veterans (and their dependents) make the transition to college and be successful at UB. Whether you need help with your benefits paperwork, a connection to local and national groups that support veterans, or just someone to talk to, we’re here for you.
As we reflect on Veterans Day 2020 during this unprecedented year, we remain steadfast in our appreciation for those who have served and are proud to honor our dedicated UB Veterans.

Are you interested in serving others, going to events and hanging out with other student veterans? Then join the UB Student Veterans Association (SVA), where you’ll find students who share your common experience — and a desire to get the most out of their time at UB. The SVA is a student-run organization that is committed to scholarship, service and camaraderie, and is open to student veterans, dependents of active duty military, and those who are currently serving in the Reserves, Guard or ROTC. Information about SVA events, meetings and news for veterans will be posted on the group’s Facebook page. You can also visit the Veteran Services office to learn more.
