University Counseling Services offers students personal counseling and psychotherapy as well as programs and activities that reinforce Boston College’s dedication to education of the whole person. Each year, University students consult with Counseling Services for help in addressing and understanding a wide variety of problems and concerns.  Please see below for the current service update.

We are here for students of all identities, beliefs, and experiences

We recognize that ongoing incidents of social injustice and racism in our country and around the world continue to have negative impacts on our students, and that trauma in the context of negotiating marginalized identities is a real and ongoing source of stress for many. UCS seeks to provide welcoming and supportive environment for all members of the BC community and is committed to fully recognizing and valuing all identities, beliefs, or experiences.

We encourage anyone experiencing distress or wanting an opportunity to process your thoughts, feeling, and reactions to seek individual and/or group support from us, either by dropping by our offices (Gasson 001) or calling us at 617-552-3310.  Remember, you are not alone.

Ask For Help

[A mental health problem] doesn’t have to take over your life, it doesn’t have to define you as a person, it’s just important that you ask for help. It’s not a sign of weakness.
