It is our goal to keep our students, staff and the community as safe as possible while providing continued service during this critical time by limiting exposure to the COVID-19 virus. The Veterans Resource Center (VRC) will be available to students virtually starting on March 31th via email and phone. You can reach us virtually via email or voicemail (714-432-5063). Follow us on instagram @occ_vrc for social media updates. We will br available in-person once campus re-opens.

Additionally, there are many community resources that you can continue to access off-campus. Please click here to see our most recent official program FAQ and COVID-19 Community Resources list.


​​​​​​​​​​​The Veterans Resource Center (VRC) is located in the Student Center.  The center includes both a VRC Office and VRC Lounge, which was opened to provide veteran students with a place to study and connect with other student veterans.  The Lounge is open during the summer, fall, and spring semesters.
