Military Kids

University Veteran Services provides support for military kids in navigating and using education benefits, provides opportunities for social engagements for military kids, and is a key point of contact for all military-connected students.

UW-Madison is home to over 1,500 students who are children of veterans or active duty service members. This population makes up over 40% of students who use a GI Bill® on campus.
