Counseling and Psychological Services
Students who are interested in meeting with a counselor should call the appointment line at (212) 854-2878. In order to provide rapid access to a clinician, Counseling and Psychological Services provides phone appointments with counselors, usually within one business day of your initial call. After this initial phone appointment, you may be scheduled for an in-person appointment according to the urgency of your needs.
In the event of an acute psychiatric emergency, you may come directly to Counseling and Psychological Services without an appointment during our scheduled clinical hours.
If the situation is urgent after scheduled clinical hours, please call the clinician-on-call at (212) 854-9797. In the event of a psychiatric emergency, you may also contact your nearest emergency room. The psychiatric emergency room nearest the Morningside Heights campus is at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center Psychiatric Emergency Room. These resources are equipped to assist with psychiatric emergencies. Once the immediate crisis is managed, Counseling and Psychological Services is available to provide a wide range of counseling services.
Counseling and Psychological Services is located on the 8th floor of Alfred Lerner Hall. Please arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment to give yourself time to fill out the forms that we will need to serve you best.
Counseling and Psychological Services also offers counseling to students at several drop-in counseling offices at 100 Carman Hall, 210 East Campus, 112A Hartley Hall, and 600 W. 113th St, Room 2BB, 102 Broadway, Intercultural Resource Center.
