Welcome to Cal Poly's Center for Military-Connected Students, a dedicated hub supporting student veterans and the dependents of those who have served. Our center offers a warm and inclusive space for studying, fostering social connections, and features a free food pantry to ensure our students can focus on their academic journey.

Appeal for Support:

We invite you to be a part of our mission by making a donation to fund crucial veteran services. Your contribution, no matter the size, plays a pivotal role in enhancing the services we provide and enriching the overall experience of our military-affiliated students.

Current Initiatives:

Meeting Basic Needs: The cost of living in San Luis Obispo often creates financial gaps for military-connected students. We actively address this challenge through our food pantry, meal vouchers, and emergency grants. With homelessness among students on the rise, your support ensures we bridge this gap effectively. Our free food pantry stands as a vital resource, recognized as the most active satellite pantry on campus.

Veteran's Garden: We envision a vibrant garden adjacent to our courtyard patio area, creating a serene space for reflection and connection.

Printing Costs: Our commitment includes providing free printing services to military-affiliated students. Monthly costs for the printer and paper add up, and your support helps sustain this valuable resource.

Scholarships: Fundraising efforts extend to supporting scholarships, and empowering our military-affiliated students in their pursuit of education.
