Some of Lakeland's special veterans services include:
- Veterans lounge in room E-117 is equipped with computers, printers, snacks, couches and other amenities where student veterans can gather in private any time.
- Military transcript evaluation.
- Transition assistance.
- Priority registration so student veterans can register early for the classes they need.
- Student Accommodation Center for disabled veterans.
- Career services.
- Laketran public transportation pass.
- And many more educational and on-campus services for student veterans.
