About the UCC
Welcome to the UCC
Thank you for your interest in the 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 services, the UCC staff attends to its mission by 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 can often be alleviated through professional counseling.
The UCC offers a broad range of services to currently enrolled and degree-seeking undergraduate and graduate students. Individual and group counseling, 24-hour urgent crisis services, and psychoeducational programming are available. In addition, there are a number of self-help resources that are popular among students.
Statistics indicate that about 12% of the student body (approximately 1500 students) use our individual and group counseling services during an academic year. Typical reasons for using the UCC include feeling anxious or stressed out, being depressed, having problems with family, friends, roommates, or significant others, having trouble 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.
