Questions about veteran benefits? Contact the Veterans Benefits Coordinator


Student Veterans Center

The Center is located on 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.  It features space for studying, socializing, and engagement activities.  Access to the Center can be gained by your student ID card.  Students with questions about ID access should contact Kinyata Brown, Associate Dean for Student Diversity, Engagement, and Inclusive Excellence.


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