Counseling & Psychological Services

Counseling & Psychological Services - Division of Student Affairs

(CAPS)  is a professional counseling office within Student Affairs. We provide counseling, outreach programs, and related services for UC students and those concerned about their welfare. We help students address and resolve personal issues so that they can make the most of their educational opportunities at the University.

We are open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Most of our services are by appointment, but we also offer an urgent care walk-in service from 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. We are closed for University holidays.




Students struggling with similar concerns share feedback with each other and learn new ways of coping. Therapists facilitate the groups. Enrollment is free. Confidentiality is strictly respected.   See Groups
