Student Veterans Resource Center


The mission of the Student Veterans Resource Center is to provide academic support to the veteran community. We assist the veteran community with their pursuit of academic and career goals, while offering services tailored to the unique experiences and needs of student veterans. Including, but not limited to, assisting with activating and utilizing your GI Bill® benefits.

The Student Veterans Resource Center (SVRC) at the University of Michigan-Flint opened in October 2009. In the SVRC we have dedicated and experienced staff who are available to help with admission, enrollment, VA benefits, advising, and referral to other services outside of UM-Flint. The academic success of each veteran on our campus is our number one priority. In addition to providing services to veterans, we encourage spouses and dependents to utilize our services.

The SVRC space is available for veterans on campus to connect and continue engaging with one another. We have space for studying and socializing, four computer stations for your use, a printer, television, and X-Box 360. 

***Services are available to Veterans, National Guard and Reserve, Spouses and Dependents.
