To access services, students may stop by the office in person or they may call (804) 257–5874 to schedule an appointment. To ensure that adequate time and attention is provided to each student, scheduled appointments are the preferred method of access. Walk-ins are accepted if scheduling permits. The Office of Counseling Services will not schedule appointments and/or exchange confidential information via email because email is not a confidential means of communication.

To access a University Counselor after-hours for an emergency please call 804-257-5600 and ask to have a University Counselor paged.
