Thank you for your service and welcome to The Haven. We are pleased that you are considering Lock Haven University and invite you to explore this site to learn more about the University and the resources and benefits available to you as a veteran or enlisted service member. We are committed to facilitating communication among our campus offices in order to serve student Veterans, military service members, reservists, and their families with a coordinated system to provide a meaningful transition from the military to LHU to realize their full potential in academia, the workplace and in their social circle.

In December 2012, LHU was named in the coveted Military Friendly Schools ® list. The 2013 Military Friendly Schools ® list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.
“We are honored to be recognized as a military friendly institution. Our
troops put their lives on the line every day for the safety of Americans.
LHU wants to show our gratitude and support when the troops return
home,” says Michael Fiorentino, President of Lock Haven University.
