Veteran Resource Center

A veteran-friendly campus

Inver Hills welcomes students who are veterans. This center provides information and resources for current military members and veterans, as well as military families, friends and community members. In addition to providing resources, we can help with re-adjustment to civilian life through peer support, networking, and camaraderie. Come visit us in the College Center, Room 214.
