The University of Kentucky is extremely proud of its long standing relationship with the men and women in uniform that bravely serve this country. From its founding as a land grant university in 1865, charged with teaching agriculture, mechanics and military tactics, to its continuing production of leaders for the Army and Air Force through the Reserve Officer Training Corps, UK has consistently contributed to the defense of freedom. It has also consistently honored its veterans through such notable campus landmarks.
The Veterans Resource Center was established to continue that tradition of support by providing UK's military and veteran populations with the service and assistance they deserve. Our goal is to ensure that your transition to college is as smooth as possible. Whether you are entering college for the first time, transferring from another school or returning after a deployment, the Wildcat community welcomes you home.
The Republic Bank Veterans Resource Center is located in 2 Erikson Hall.
