TWU Supports Our Veterans

TWU Veterans Student Services is here to support our Veterans, service members, spouses and dependents as they make their journey into higher education. Our dedicated staff offers assistance and guidance to active duty service members, Veterans, Reservists, Guardsmen and family members on the utilization of VA educational benefits.

Veteran Student Lounge

As a student,  you’ll have access to a lounge  for our Veterans that includes coffee, snacks, a TV, tables, couches and chairs located in the Colloms Campus Center.
