Student Veterans Association

The Student Veterans of Winthrop University organization strives to ensure that veterans are successful in their transition from combat to the classroom by developing programs and policies that help veterans with the transition, centralizing the critical resources that student veterans need to graduate, and advocating on behalf of the student veterans of Winthrop. The group meets throughout the semester. For more information, please contact them at

Student Veterans Center

The Student Veterans of Winthrop Association operates a center located in the garden level of Bancroft Hall.  This space is designated for use by active members of the organization, and also for our active duty, National Guard/Reservist, and veteran students.  The center features space for studying, socializing, and association activities.  Access to the Center can be gained by your student ID card.  Students with questions about ID access should contact our office.

Purple Heart Parking

There are two designated parking spaces for purple heart recipients on campus.  These parking spots are located outside McBryde Hall and Dinkins Hall.  Any student who is a purple heart recipient may park in either of these spots provided they have the following on their car:

1. A current/valid Winthrop parking decal (Commuter, Resident or Disabled) 
2.  A state issued “Purple Heart” license plate
A “PH” sticker attached to their Winthrop parking decal.  This sticker will be issued by the Director of Military, Adult and Transfer Services to students who have been awarded a Purple Heart.  You must present your DD-214 or other official documentation of the award and have your car present in the Dinkins lot to receive the sticker.

Please note, that if the Purple Heart spots are full, you must park in a spot designated by your WU permit.

Our student veterans are encouraged to become involved in all aspects of campus life. We would encourage you to familiarize yourself with all Winthrop has to offer, including:
