Welcome to University Counseling Services
of Boston College.
University Counseling Services (UCS) is a department within the Division of Student Affairs. Our mission is to address the mental health needs of the Boston College community.
At University Counseling Services (UCS), we recognize that, among the many issues that impact student's psychological well-being, ongoing incidents of injustice in our country and the world continue to have negative impacts on students. We also recognize that trauma in the context of negotiating marginalized identities is real and is an ongoing stressor for our students. Consistent with the university mission, UCS has a role in creating a safe and supportive environment for all university members, regardless of identities, beliefs, or experiences, to have an opportunity to express and process their thoughts, feelings, and reactions so that we all might pursue our best selves. If you find yourself experiencing significant distress, we invite you to seek individual and/or group conversations with us, either through intake or in meeting with our Emergency Clinical Services. Please come in (Gasson 001) or call us at 617-552- 3310.
