Student Veteran Lounge

Main Content

On January 29, 2015 the University of Illinois proudly cut the ribbon to commemorate the opening of our new Student Veteran Lounge. The lounge, located on the food court level of the Illini Union, 1401 W. Green St., is dedicated to military veterans but is open to all students. Because student veterans are non-traditional learners who often commute to campus, the lounge provides a central location for them to study and socialize with other veterans. The pictures also show members of the Illini Veterans, a registered student organization and chapter of Student Veterans of America preparing paracord bracelets for an upcoming fundraiser.
