About US

The Kutztown University Office of Veterans Services provides a one-stop-shop suite of services to our military-affiliated students, faculty and staff.  We exist to help our military-affiliated population to succeed in their educational and career goals.      

The Veterans Services Center is a vital hub where students can study, relax, have access to computers and printers, meet other veterans and members of the Military Club, and receive assistance with their GI Bill and other benefits. The center offers a lounge area with TV, a kitchenette and an adjacent study center and meeting room. Stop by and visit our 'mini-USO!'
