WSU Veteran's Center at the Sustainability House
Student veterans have a unique and engaging living option at Winona State University. Located next to campus and across the street from the Integrated Wellness Complex and other academic buildings, the Veteran's House gives students the autonomy of an off-campus house with the support of living on-campus.
Residents find extra support through a residential setting with those who share similar experiences of military service. With close ties to the Student Veteran's Club and a student liaison for WSU Veteran's Affairs living in the house, you'll gain connections to campus as well as the veteran community.
The price of renting a room is all inclusive, meaning you do not have to pay extra for cable, internet, utilities, garbage or laundry.
What Current Students Say
It's a good opportunity to surround yourself with people who share the same interest. The house is really nice and there is a lot of privacy.
There is a great sense of community at the Veteran's House. I enjoy getting away from campus and hanging out with like-minded people from similar backgrounds. Living at the veteran house has led to lifelong friendships. Overall, it has been a great place to live. --Corbin
Living here is a great way to meet people with similar mindsets and principles. It's nice having your own kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. With other community amenities such as a projector movie screen and an Xbox One, the house is a great way to have events and meet other people around the community. --Holden
