About the UCC
Welcome/ About UCC Services
A message from the Director:
Thank you for your interest in University Counseling Center of the University of Notre Dame!
College life is a time of change, growth, and transition. The professional staff of the University Counseling Center (UCC) is highly trained to help college students through these times of adjustment. In providing service, the UCC staff attends to its mission of addressing the developmental, environmental, and remedial concerns of students. We recognize that the stress associated with a high pressure academic environment at a critical developmental period sometimes creates difficulties. These difficulties are ones that often can be alleviated through professional counseling.
UCC offers a broad range of services to currently enrolled and degree-seeking undergraduate and graduate students. Individual and group counseling, 24-hour crisis services and psychoeducational programming are available. In addition, workshops or other campus programs, or the self-help virtual pamphlets sponsored by the Counseling Center are popular among students.
Statistics indicate that about 9% of the student body (almost 1000 students) use our individual and group counseling services during an academic year. Typical reasons for using the Center include feeling anxious or stressed out, being depressed, having problems with family, friends, roommates or significant others, having touble with alcohol or other substances, or having an eating problem.
If you feel that you or someone you know could profit from our services, please call our office. We will either provide the help that you need or help you find someone who can.
