The Veteran and Military Affairs (VMA) Office, in response to COVID-19, will be limiting the number of students allowed in the office at any given time. Regrettably, we will be closing our student lounge and computer lab until the university returns to standard operations. We will also be taking the following actions to achieve social distancing while still meeting the needs of our students:

  • We will continue to provide a link for uploading student documents via myBama.
  • Students can call (205)348-0983 or email vma@ua.edu for a meeting with VMA staff
  • VMA will have a document drop installed next to the VMA door on the third floor of Houser Hall

Thank you for your patience during COVID-19 operations, and please don’t hesitate to reach out to the VMA by phone or email.
