Military-Affiliated Student Center

    Welcome to the Military-Affiliated Student Center

    The Military-Affiliated Student Center provides academic support, transition assistance, and advocacy for students who are Active-Duty Service Members, Veterans, ROTC cadets, Reservists, National Guard, and their Families. 


      Since May 2012, the Military-Affiliated Student Center has provided military-connected students with resources, social engagement opportunities, and academic support. Stop by and visit our lounge space with a coffee and snack bar, study tables, whiteboards, and conference and quiet study rooms.

      Our center is located on the 5th Floor of the Iowa State Memorial Union. We are open during the academic year from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. During the Summer semester and break periods we are 7:30 to 4:00 pm Monday-Friday. 

      Find Your Community

      While attending Iowa State, students are encouraged to find a community so they can create a support system while fostering friendships for years to come. Our purpose at the MASC is to not only provide academic, social, and transitional support for our students, but to provide a safe space to allow every individual to be themselves and build camaraderie with one another.
