Student veterans are eligible for priority registration for classes and are welcome to use the Veterans Resource Center located in Building 477, rooms 105 and 109. The resource center includes study space, wireless access, two meeting areas, and resources on housing, career support, and VA services.
Because making the career transition from military to civilian life can be difficult, Career Services offers special support in this area through both their website at http://career.ucsb.edu/students/diversity/veterans.html
and their books in the Career Resource Room. Career Services is located in building 599 (the pink building with the green trim), next to the Humanities & Social Sciences building and close to Storke Tower.
