Veteran Resources at The University of Texas at Austin
The Student Veteran Services Office (SVS) at The University of Texas at Austin is your one-stop shop for student veterans on campus. The SVS provides information about GI Bill and Hazelwood benefits, helps dependents and veterans in transitioning to civilian life, assists with admissions, academic support, and job and career support. The office is located in the Student Services Building (SSB), room 4.472. Stop by the office on campus to ask questions and meet other Texas vets. Student Veteran Services and the Dean of Students are proud sponsors of UT Austin's Student Veteran Association!
The Veterans Integration to Academic Leadership (VITAL) Initiative recognizes that some veterans may enter colleges and universities with transitional issues or a need for physical or mental health assistance. VITAL strives to enhance academic retention and success through:
On-campus clinical care and coordination
Improving understanding of Veterans' unique strengths and challenges through education and training
Collaborating with your local VA Medical Center, Veterans Benefits Administration, campus faculty and staff, and community resources
The local VITAL outreach coordinator is located within the Student Veteran Services Office in the Student Services Building (SSB).
