Military Resource Lounge

Military Resource Lounge Entryway Wall

Veterans, active duty service members, reservists, National Guardsmen, military spouses and dependents come to the Lounge to relax between classes and to do homework or study. The Lounge is located in the Warwick Center across from the cashier windows (here's a map showing Visitor Parking, Lot M, and the Warwick Center, labeled WC). 

Amenities include a kitchen with a fridge, convection oven, microwave, and coffee maker; a lounge area with couches and a TV; computer stations and free printing; dry erase boards and basic office supplies; small storage lockers; and tables for meetings, homework, or studying. Students may borrow textbooks from our Textbook Trade program. Workshops and social events are held throughout the semester in this space. 

Randall Library

The library at UNCW is another space on campus where students can take a break between classes. Computers, dry erase boards, charging stations, iPrint, group study rooms (which can be reserved online), an entire floor reserved for QUIET study, the Technology Assistance Center (TAC), the Digital Makerspace, books (!), librarians, and most importantly, COFFEE at Port City Java are all there for students. Plus, the library is currently undergoing renovations based on student feedback on how they actually use the library. 

John Osinski is the Student Support Librarian liaison to military students; email him at, or visit him in person in Randall Library Room 2059.

The Student Veterans Organization provides a sense of community for active duty service members, veterans, military spouses and dependents.


This career guidance tool takes into consideration not only the work people did in the military, but also their educational paths and career interests. In other words, PathwayU understands that you are a college student and that you may or may not be continuing in the same career path you started in the military. While PathwayU is accessible to all UNCW students, the Military Crosswalk feature is specially designed for veterans, and it will provide results that indicate the likelihood that you'll be interested in a job type or employment field that matches your work experience and educational goals.

UNCW has a partnership with PsychHub, an organization that seeks to provide free educational resources to veterans and their family members. Try their Transition School Course portfolio to help you wrap your mind around your transition out of the military.
