” Discimus ut Serviamus: We learn so that we may serve”

Welcome to the Veteran & Military Support Services

Queens College is dedicated to fostering a sense of community and developing channels of communication among veterans, military personnel, and dependent students, and enhancing their experience on campus. The college welcomes and supports these individuals and recognizes the contributions they make as citizens and as students. We are proud of the level of diversity and academic excellence they bring to our school.

VMSS has been designed specifically to address the multiple needs of veteran and military students at QC. The VMSS team offers collaborative academic and supportive services in each of the offices listed under Related Links. In addition, we provide referrals to local community and government agencies that can offer assistance with housing, medical, and mental health issues.
