University of Maryland University College has served our nation's military and veteran students since 1947.
Our experience and familiarity with student veterans ensures that our expansive suite of student services will prove helpful as you move toward achieving your academic aspirations. You will find that many of our staff and faculty share your experiences, as they themselves are veterans or family members of veterans.
Col. Floyd G. and Lt. Col. Dona R. Hildebrand Student Veterans Lounge
In the Col. Floyd G. and Lt. Col. Dona R. Hildebrand Student Veterans Lounge, you can take advantage of local, state, and Federal resources from the Department of Veterans Affairs and other third-party organizations. You can also meet with dedicated military and veteran staff who can help you with transitioning out of the service and into the classroom and a civilian career. Plus, you can use the computers and study room. The lounge is also home to the Veterans Resource Center and is located in Room 1441 in the Academic Center at Largo.
SALUTE Honor Society
SALUTE is a nationally recognized honor society for military and veteran students at two-year and four-year institutions of higher education. Established in 2009, SALUTE is the first national honor society for active-duty military servicemembers, National Guard members, reservists, retirees, and veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces.
Eliminating Barriers to Success
The Office of Accessibility Services collaborates with the campus community to provide accommodations for veteran students with disabilities to ensure students are able to fully participate in all aspects of the classroom and online experience. Types of disabilities that warrant accommodations may include but are not limited to learning, physical, psychological, and/or medical disabilities.
