The center offers dedicated study areas, a computer lab, student meeting space, comfortable lounge to build comradery and relax, small kitchenette, and connections to other resources. The center is open to reserves, active duty, veterans, and their dependents.

The Purpose of the Diablo Valley College Veterans Alliance (DVCVA) is to provide a community of support for military veterans and their families. In order to meet the needs of current and prospective student veterans, the DVCVA will work to inform faculty, staff, and the greater student body in order to provide them with the knowledge and tools to properly support our student Veterans, support academic and co-curricular experiences, and facilitate preparation for goals beyond graduation.
