The National Veterans Resource Center at Syracuse University had to accommodate a large number of competing uses. But above all it had to feel like home.

The NVRC is a one-of-a-kind educational facility. The dozens of local, regional, and national organizations based there are expected to serve over 40,000 veterans and their families every year. While preserving its responsiveness to the needs of those visitors, the NVRC is charged as well with leveraging its prominent location on the historic Syracuse University campus to welcome students and the community at large. The arrangement reflects the thoughtful resolution of those demands. The building is under construction now and expected to open in 2020.
