Proudly Serving Bronx Community College’s Veterans, Active Duty, National Guard, Reservists, and Dependents

The Office of Veteran and Military Resources (VMR) provides services for veterans, current service members, and their dependents who are enrolled at Bronx Community College.

From the college application all the way to graduation. We take a proactive approach to assisting the student-veteran. The VMR complies with Executive Order (EO) 13607; Establishing Principles of Excellence (PoE) – we avoid fraudulent and unduly aggressive recruiting techniques as well as misrepresentations, payments of incentive compensation, and failure to meet state authorization requirements. We introduce student-veterans to the resources they need to be successful.

We not only connect student-veterans with other veterans attending the Bronx Community College and the greater veteran community, but also help them integrate with the rest of the student and civilian population.

The VMR provides student-veterans with a lounge:

The Bronx Community College Veterans Lounge is located in the Loew hall building, room 319. We will open Monday through Friday 0800 until 1700.

All veterans are encourages to use the veterans lounge and the resources available there. We have computers for use, printer with paper, a refrigerator, a microwave, space to do work, and comfortable seats to watch the Smart Board. Here you can relax, study, and grab a cup of coffee.
