Current Students



The Veterans Resource Center (VRC) is a center for veterans, current or former military personnel, their family members or significant others.  Veterans can get information on benefits, relax between classes, use computers, study or just get together and talk. 

VRC Brooklyn Park, room H165, 763-488-2529,

VRC Eden Prairie, room F125, 952-995-1509,

Veteran students can apply for VA education benefits with the help of the VRC student workers.  For more complicated cases, students can work with one of the MN VA Higher Ed Regional Coordinators who are available by appointment.

Other resources include computers with MS Office applications, WiFi, and printing capability.  Each center also provides coffee, snacks, TV and game systems.  The centers welcome all students to join in the camaraderie.  No recruiting is allowed in the VRC and for those currently serving, rank is left at the door.
