College is a time of major transition, change, and growth. It can be exciting and challenging and, at times, overwhelming, too. The stressors of college life may impact your mental health and make it difficult to manage daily life and often rigorous academic demands. The University Counseling Center (UCC) is here to help. Here, we provide a safe, confidential, nonjudgmental space where students can explore a wide variety of issues and concerns. Our services include crisis intervention, brief consultations, workshops, Drop-In services, group and individual counseling, psychiatric care for medication management, and referrals to off-campus treatment providers. All UCC services are confidential, free, and available to all degree-seeking students currently enrolled at the University of Notre Dame.
All students seeking services for the first time at the UCC do so through our Drop-In system. Simply come to the UCC during scheduled Drop-In hours and complete an in-person Drop-In appointment with a UCC counselor. We will discuss any immediate concerns, help you develop a plan to address ongoing issues, and connect you with additional UCC services or campus resources as needed.
Counseling ServicesCounseling Services
24/7 crisis intervention services are available 24/7 by calling the UCC at 574-631-7336.
All students access the UCC for the first time through the UCC Drop-In system. Drop-In appointments enable students to address a specific concern or to determine which UCC services might best address their issues.
Let’s Talk is a free and confidential program designed to serve the needs of students through brief consultations that occur outside the UCC in easily accessible locations on campus.
The UCC Talkline provides phone consultations with a counselor 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Individual counseling offers the opportunity for students to work through issues that are affecting their functioning with the guidance of a UCC counselor.
Psychiatric services are available to students through the UCC. To access these services, students are first seen for an initial Drop-In appointment at the UCC.
Group counseling enables students to learn about themselves and develop new ways of managing concerns and relating to others.
Workshops & Support Spaces
Facilitated workshops are opportunities for students to identify coping strategies and find new resources to address a specific topic.
Through TimelyCare, students can receive 24/7 access to mental health and medical telehealth care and health coaching across the United States.
There are times a student may want or need mental health services that are beyond the scope of the services provided at the UCC. In these instances, the UCC can provide an off-campus referral.
Returning to the University
The UCC is often involved in the process of evaluating a student’s readiness to resume academic work after a leave of absence from the University.
Your Feedback is Essential
The UCC strives to provide high-quality mental health care and resources to support the education and development of all Notre Dame students. Feedback is a useful tool in evaluating and improving our services. Please tell us about your experience at the UCC, your thoughts about the services we offer or services you would like to see offered, and anything else you think we need to know.
