The Veterans Center
The UNT Veterans Center is the place to start. At the center, we help student veterans navigate university resources on their way to academic success. Located in the University Union, Suite 320, the center focuses on the particular needs and interests of student veterans and their transition from service to college. For information, call 940-369-8021 or visit the Veterans Center website.
Student Veterans Association
The Student Veterans Association of UNT assists veterans, soldiers on active duty, reservists, National Guard members, Coast Guard members and their dependents to make an easier transition into the academic community. This group provides friendship, support and practical help in navigating the university. The officers of the UNT Student Veterans Association staff UNT’s Veterans Center and are a constant source of support. For more information, please contact Tockie Hemphill.
The Disability and Well-being Consortium at UNT helps veterans with disabilities progress toward optimal health by addressing both the physical and the psychosocial trauma caused from a combat injury. UNT's Department of Kinesiology, Health Promotion and Recreation and the Department of Rehabilitation, Social Work and Addictions work together to offer an integrated approach to health and wellness.
We also provide you with family and parenting services from family developmental specialists at UNT, along with community partners such as Texas HIPPY (Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters) and AmeriCorps Vista.
The Tinnitus and Hyperacusis Clinic at UNT's Speech and Hearing Center and its staff provide comprehensive clinical audiologic diagnostic services to veterans. They also offer a comprehensive regimen of rehabilitative services and devices that will assist veterans in alleviating and coping with their hearing loss and/or damage.
The Office of Disability Accommodation can assist with adaptive strategies and academic accommodations if you qualify for disability accommodations. For more information, visit the office in the University Union, Room 321.
