At MSU, we understand that veteran students are not the same as traditional students coming out of high school, which is why we have many programs and resources to help you navigate the system and succeed on campus.

 

Veteran Support Center

The Veteran Support Center is a dedicated space in the Strand Union Building, right in the center of campus, with trained staff to help veteran students with just about anything. Whether its questions about DVA benefits, help figuring out which classes to take or just a place to study or catch up with friends, the Veteran Support Center is open to all veteran students and spouses. The Center is equipped with:

  • Computer stations
  • Tables for group or independent study
  • Lounge area with cable TV
  • Coffee maker, refrigerator and microwave
  • Printing services

Contact Us
The Veteran Support Center is open 8:00am - 5:00pm (Mon - Fri) in Room 185 of the Strand Union Building.

Dedicated Veteran Counselor

In partnership with the Counseling and Psychological Services office, MSU has a dedicated counselor that offers free and confidential personal counseling to veteran students.

Living Options

Many veteran students choose to live off campus in the Bozeman community. But If you are coming from base to campus, Residence Halls or Family & Graduate Housing may simplify your transition.

ASMSU Daycare Center

Adjacent to Family & Graduate Housing, the ASMSU Daycare Center provides child care and educational activities for preschoolers ages 2.5 to 6 years old. It is open to children of MSU students, staff and faculty.

Veteran Mentor Program

This student-initiated program connects incoming veteran students with a peer mentor (either a veteran or spouse of a veteran) who can help them successfully navigate campus.

DVA Education Benefits Programs

The Veteran Support Center staff is familiar with all of the state and federal benefits programs and can help you select the right program for you, apply and make sure you’re getting the most out of your benefits program.

Disability services

MSU has a proud history of accommodating persons with disabilities, and is committed to ensuring equal educational access and full participation in all of the university’s programs, services and events. www.montana.edu/disability
