OASIS

Created in 2012, the Veterans Oasis in the Student Union serves as the primary social lounge for our veteran population looking for a space on campus to relax in-between classes.  Featuring cable TV, public access computers, a Keurig, and ample seating the Oasis will remain the prime gathering place of student veterans at UConn.  Originally conceived by a group of women’s clubs that have funded and created these spaces at colleges across the state. the Veterans Oasis here at Storrs has been designed to offer a haven for veterans and service members who are looking for an area to unwind among people with similar experiences.

We encourage you to stop by either this location in the Student Union or the Kyle Milliken Lounge and study spaces in Hawley Armory (North End of the building).
