Veterans

Oasis 2

The faculty and staff of UConn Stamford welcome veterans and their families to pursue educational goals on this campus.  Veterans – as faculty, staff, and students – form an important part to the Stamford community, and the campus is dedicated to supporting service men and women in transitioning back to civilian life. As part of our desire to assist student Veterans, we work closely with state and federal agencies to get your needs met in a timely manner.  We also provide an OASIS Center for Veterans to enjoy and relax the company of fellow service men and women.

The VA Representative on campus is Genoveva Arce.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Gen Arce at stamfordbursar@uconn.edu for all of your VA Educational needs.

FORMS: The following forms are used, University wide, for VA Certification and Auditing purposes.
