Veterans Engagement

Veterans Engagement

Trocaire College was one of the first colleges in Western New York to provide tuition assistance to our returning Iraqi and Afghanistan veterans in appreciation for their service to our country. We are proud to have all our veterans and military dependents as students here at Trocaire College and we look forward to serving each of them as they continue their academic and professional goals.

Trocaire works diligently to keep Veterans engaged to completion. Some of the resources we offer include:


Student Veteran Lounge

The student veteran lounge, room 215 on the main campus, is a room set up specifically and exclusively for Trocaire veteran students. The lounge includes comfortable seating, an area for studying, two computer stations equipped with Zoom to connect overseas, a mini-fridge, microwave, Keurig with coffee, tea, and the works, coat hooks, and more. The lounge is a place to be a home away from home.


Student Veteran Club

The Trocaire Veterans Support Club serves as a source of knowledge, support, representation, and camaraderie to all military veterans students.
