Counseling and Support

The Office of Counseling Services provides a range of clinical services and mental health support at no cost to undergraduate and graduate students who experience emotional distress. 


Whether it's the stress of leaving home and adjusting to the college experience, or the pressures of final exam week, we know life as a student can be challenging. We're here to help.

Our counselors are licensed by the State of Connecticut and can diagnose and treat a variety of mental health issues such as stress, anxiety, depression, relationship problems, sexual violence, eating disorders, grief, and alcohol or drug abuse. We strive to promote the educational success of students by supporting their intellectual, emotional, and social development through the provision of culturally aware clinical services. Our staff is committed to creating a welcoming and affirming space where all members of the QU community are valued and celebrated.
