Military and Veteran Student Services

Mission: Our role is to support military members, veterans, and their families at UNI as they transition between military duty, college, and new careers. We are committed to faculty and staff education, on and off campus resource networking, advocacy, and listening to each student to ensure that each military affiliated students' voice is heard and they are empowered to achieve success in class and beyond.


The University of Northern Iowa has many resources available on campus for students. If you can not find what you are looking for on UNI's campus there are many outside resources within the community and Iowa that are able to help Military and Veteran students. Below are resources found both on and off campus. If you still can't find what your looking for or if you have any questions, please contact the Military and Veteran Student Services.
