NEW – EASIER, SAME-DAY ACCESS TO COUNSELING CENTER SERVICES
Beginning October 28 , 2019, ALL students will be able to access services at the UCC between the hours of 9:00 am – 4:00 pm, weekdays without needing an appointment. NEW Drop-In Hours will enable students to access services when they need them without needing to call ahead and wait days for a scheduled appointment time. Simply drop by the UCC on the third floor of St. Liam Hall for a drop-in appointment with one of our counselors.
Our new Drop-In Hours mean that the UCC will no longer be scheduling initial appointments with students who are new to our service. To access services at the UCC for the first time, simply come in during Drop-In Hours and be seen by a counselor.
Students who are already connected to the UCC are also welcome to utilize the Drop-In Hours, however if you would like to see the same counselor that you have worked with in the past, please call the UCC to schedule a time with that counselor. If you would prefer to work with a different counselor or if you have an immediate need, please come in during Drop-In Hours.
What to expect at Drop-In Hours.
Students first complete a UCC form on a private computer and then meet with the next available counselor to discuss their concerns and develop a plan to address those concerns. The typical wait-time to meet with a counselor is anticipated to be about 10 minutes.
The UCC will continue to be available 24/7 for Crisis Intervention Services. Students needing help in a crisis can call or drop-in to the UCC anytime between 8:30-5:00 weekdays. Outside of normal business hours, call the UCC and press “0” to reach the after-hours on-call counselor.
