STUDENT VETERANS RESOURCE CENTER svrc.ucsd.edu
The Student Veterans Resource Center (SVRC) is committed to ensuring students make a successful transition from the military to campus life, and are assisted in their progress toward completing their academic degree. The Center provides social and study space, computers and printing, a pool table, refrigerator, microwave and lockers. The Center has a meditation room for students to relax, meditate or even take a quick nap. The SVRC provides a military-affiliated student orientation, special graduation ceremony, peer mentors, workshops, career development activities, and community outreach, and is home to UC San Diego’s undergraduate student veteran organization and veteran staff association. The SVRC provides on-site counseling from the following departments: • Academic Enrichment Program • Career Services Center • Campus Veterans Benefits Coordinator • Representatives from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs • Counseling and Psychological Services • Office for Students with Disabilities Student veterans bring a wealth and depth of knowledge, skills, perspective and initiative to the campus. As a country, we are truly indebted to our service members and veterans, and we owe it to them to make sure they get the benefits that we promised them when they took that oath to defend and protect us. I can’t do what they’ve done, but I can help make sure that our students get the benefits they’ve earned, and that our campus is providing the support they need to be academically successful.

UC San Diego offers great opportunities for student veterans. Besides our top-notch academic and research opportunities, our military-affiliated student population is large enough to get the visibility and resources we need to provide critical services for our students, and yet not so big that we can’t provide individualized attention to each student.
