Counseling Centers

The counseling centers provide free and confidential psychological counseling for students, on both an individual and a group basis. Centers are staffed by clinical and counseling psychologists, masters level clinicians, and graduate students under professional supervision. Students are encouraged to use the counseling centers for any of a variety of psychological or emotional concerns that may affect their academic work, including anxiety, depression, relationships, and family issues. Services are available for a range of concerns from minor situational crises to long-standing psychological issues that cause major disruptions in life. In most cases, students needing longer-term care will be referred to other nearby services.

Counseling centers also offer psychological education programs on such topics as stress management, eating and body image issues, test anxiety, interpersonal relationships, conflict resolution, and bereavement.

Appointments can be made by contacting the appropriate office: Cook College Counseling Center, Cook Campus Center, 732/932-9150; Douglass College Psychological Services, Federation Hall, 732/932-9070; Livingston College Counseling Services, Tillett Hall, 732/445-4140; Rutgers College Counseling Center, 17 Senior Street, 732/932-7884; and University College Office of Advising and Counseling, Miller Hall, 732/932-8093. The Rutgers College and University College centers are open during Summer Session.

There is also a peer counseling program at the university called Scarlet Listeners. This student-run program provides a drop-in center and telephone hotline for students needing someone to talk to, information, or referral to campus or community agencies. They can be contacted at 732/247-5555.
