Counseling Services

Your first scheduled appointment with us when you seek out services will be a “consultation” or Quick Access Appointment. The purpose of the consultation will be for you and your counselor to determine which service(s) best suit your individual needs.  You can schedule a consultation appointment by calling (319) 335-7294.  Once you have an appointment scheduled, please plan to arrive at least 30 minutes early to complete paperwork on our in-house computer terminals.  The actual consultation appointment typically lasts 45 to 50 minutes. The purpose of the Quick Access appointment is to help you with your immediate problems, concerns, or crisis.

Please see our UCS Eligibility for Services FAQ for eligibility for service information.

The UCS offers the following services:

If an emergency occurs after hours, you are encouraged to call the Crisis Center at (319) 351-0140; Department of Public Safety at (319) 335-5022; or UIHC Emergency Room at (319) 356-2233. If you have concerns about another staff or faculty member, Faculty and Staff Services can be reached at (319) 335-2085.
