Counseling Center

We are staffed by psychologists and mental health counselors who provide brief counseling, assessment, referral, and crisis intervention services to currently-enrolled University of Washington students. There is no charge for most of our services. Watch a brief video about mental health at the UW.

Updates about our services (4/20/2015):

  • The current wait time for an initial appointment (intake) is one to two weeks, though it may be possible to be seen sooner if you call for a same-day appointment.
  • If you are experiencing a crisis and need help right away, click here for information about crisis services.
  • Once you have seen a counselor for an initial appointment, you may be provided with a referral to an outside provider if longer-term counseling is indicated. If you and your intake counselor agree that your needs are a good match for short-term UWCC services, you may need to wait 1-2 weeks before you begin meeting with your assigned counselor.
  • If you would like referrals to providers in the community, please contact us and a counselor will assist you.
