Drexel University has long been considered a top choice for military-connected students, and we are proud of our nearly 600 student-veterans, active-duty, reservists, and military dependents who have decided to make Drexel their home.

The Center for Military and Veteran Services coordinates a campus-wide effort to ensure that student-veterans and military dependents are able to access high-quality campus services with ease; our goal is to create a truly military-friendly campus community through our welcoming and informative approach. Learn more about the resources available through the Center for Military and Veteran Services brochure [PDF].
