The UCC offers daily drop-in hours to help students see a counselor without waiting for a scheduled appointment. Drop-in appointments are both single session counseling appointments to address immediate needs and a way to get connected with additional UCC services. Drop-in hours are available Monday, Thursday, and Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Tuesday and Wednesday from 1 to 4 p.m. Until further notice, simply call the UCC (574-631-7336) during drop-in hours and indicate that you would like to do a drop-in appointment. The UCC staff will help get you started with an online questionnaire and you will then meet with the next available counselor. Students should allow for approximately 60 minutes for drop-in appointments.
Call the UCC Helpline 24/7 (574-631-TALK) to speak with a counselor about a concern.
Call the UCC Office (574-631-7336) 24/7 for crisis services that will connect you to an after-hours counselor.
Fighting Irish Care
Visit Fighting Irish Care to create your profile and utilize the TalkNow feature to hold a video or phone conversation with a counselor about an immediate concern.
The UCC offers a variety of workshops to help students connect with one another in a safe space while also learning helpful skills to manage the remainder of the fall semester. Workshops focus on issues like body image, communication skills, and stress management. Each workshop is held via Zoom. Sign up here.
