Welcome to Student Counseling Services


Student Counseling Services promotes student success through

  • Individual and group counseling
  • Classes, workshops, and presentations
  • Consultation to faculty, staff, and students

Established in 1932, our services address a wide range of issues impacting student success, including:

Mental health and life concerns            Learning and academic skills challenges
Career uncertainty  Faculty/staff-student communication

As a staff we are committed to valuing diversity, honoring students, faculty, and staff from all racial, religious, and ethnic identities, sexualities, gender identities, and disability conditions.

Our vision is a university where all students are empowered

to reach their personal, academic, and career goals.


What We Offer

We are currently experiencing a high demand for counseling services.
We are able to see most students for a same-day-as-requested initial
appointment and any student experiencing a mental health crisis will be
seen same-day, usually within an hour of requesting an appointment.
Please know that we will try to schedule an on-going appointment for you
   as quickly as possible after your first time walk-in appointment.
We can also work with you to connect you with counseling resources in
the community if you need long-term counseling or special services.
If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact us at
counseling@umn.edu or by phone at 612-624-3323.
Thank you for your understanding.
