UNCW hosts several military-affiliated events each year, and we love to have alumni participate! Coming to our events is a great way to network with community members and other alumni. It's also an opportunity to give back to current UNCW students by sharing with them what life has looked like for you since graduation.

Veterans Hall

The Office of Military Affairs has moved to Veterans Hall; our new space include a large student lounge, kitchen, and reception area; a training classroom; individual study tables; office space; and a sound-proofed quiet room, perfect for students who are commuting a long distance to UNCW. 

Alumni Reunion

Our office hosts an alumni reunion during Homecoming weekend each February. Check our Events page for this year's event.

Mildly Entertaining at UNCW Podcast

The Office of Military Affairs hosts a podcast called Mildly Entertaining at UNCW. This podcast features interviews with UNCW staff, members of veteran and military community support services, and alumni. If you'd like to be interviewed, please email Joanna DeMott ( 

Military-affiliated Scholarships

Each year, the Office of Military Affairs works through events like UNCW's Give More in 24 campaign and through community individuals and organizations to provide scholarships to current military-affiliated students. Scholarships may help defray the costs of attending UNCW, especially those costs not covered by the Post-9/11 GI Bill or other VA benefits.
