Counseling Center

Here when you need us

The UD Counseling Center provides mental health services to University of Dayton undergraduate and graduate students. We have adopted a Drop-In model, in which students can access same-day sessions for one-time consultations or to link to ongoing services. See below for more information about our drop-in hours, as the times may change from semester to semester.

Crisis Services

If you or someone you know are a current student and in need of help for a mental health crisis, please call the Counseling Center at 937-229-3141. If it is after business hours, please call Public Safety at 937-229-2121 and ask to talk with the crisis therapist.

You may also call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255, call 911, or go to the nearest hospital emergency room.

The Counseling Center is pleased to offer daily Drop-In Hours so that students may more quickly and easily access a mental health professional. Summer Drop-In Hours will be offered in person in Gosiger Hall on the following dates/times:

  • Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays from 1 - 3 p.m. 
  • Thursdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. - noon.

No appointment is necessary. Students need only walk up to the front desk and state that they are here for Drop-Ins! This is the entry point both for students wishing to talk one-time with a clinician, and also for those seeking ongoing services.

If you are unable to attend Drop-In Hours in person, you may sign up for a drop-in session over Zoom. You must be physically present in the state of Ohio at the time of the drop-in to utilize this service, as our clinicians are only licensed to practice in Ohio.

Students unable to attend Drop-In Hours due to scheduling conflicts should contact the Counseling Center at 937-229-3141 to discuss alternative options.
