Seeking help is a sign of strength! Many students encounter a variety of personal, social, career, and academic issues that call for assistance beyond advice provided by friends and family. Fortunately, the University Counseling Center provides free and confidential counseling services to all University of Maryland students. To schedule an appointment call 301-314-7651 or stop by the front desk in the main lobby of the Shoemaker Building. Walk-in counseling is available to students of color who would like a consultation with a counselor of color, and GLBTQ students who would like a consultation with a gay, lesbian or a gay ally counselor, daily from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Students who seek help in choosing a major can walk-in for consultation with a career counselor on Wednesdays from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. or join the Career Discovery Zone group on Thursdays. Our newest walk-in service is for students who are veterans. Veterans Walk-In Hour occurs on Wednesdays (at Vet Center) and Thursdays (at Counseling Center) from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., and Fridays at 10am at the Vet Center.
Counseling Center Services
Personal/Social Counseling. You don't have to deal with your problems alone. In a warm and supportive environment, you can meet with a counselor to discuss any concern you may have related to your personal and social well-being. Among the topics many students discuss in counseling are self-esteem, stress, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, sex, family problems, and loneliness. You may see a counselor for individual counseling, couples counseling, or join one of the many counselor-led support groups. Call 301-314-7651 or visit our website - www.counseling.umd.edu/Structur/cslgservice.htm.
