Counseling Center

The Counseling Center is offering a full array of services, including after-hours assistance. Many of our services are available either in-person or remotely based on student preference.

The Counseling Center is proud to offer care that is flexible, culturally responsive, solution-focused and tailored to every student’s unique needs. Students have access to same-day appointments so that they can speak with a therapist the very day they seek help. Students receive support in an expanded variety of ways, including workshops, groups, and peer support. For more information visit Services.

Need Help? Schedule an Appointment

To reach us, please call 410-704-2512. You can schedule an appointment or get more information during normal business hours (Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., except for lunch, 12:00 p.m. to 1 p.m. EST). Immediate crisis support is available by phone at all times outside of business hours.

Our policy is that your first appointment at TUCC is in person so that we can best assess your treatment needs. However, there are certain situations in which we can make exceptions and schedule a virtual appointment. Please contact us directly (410-704-2512) if you have any questions or need clarification. 

In addition to calling the Counseling Center, you can now schedule in-person same-day appointments online. If you would prefer to have a virtual appointment or change your appointment to virtual and you have access to a private space and webcam, please call the Counseling Center directly (410-704-2512) to inquire about your eligibility for a virtual appointment.

Please visit online scheduling and select the option labeled: “Same-Day Appointment Scheduling (in person only).” After entering your contact information, you will be able to see all of our available openings for today and you can choose the one that works best for your schedule.

Once you have scheduled an appointment, you will receive a confirmation email with additional information, including instructions about completing the required paperwork that MUST be submitted by your appointment time. NOTE: By scheduling an appointment online, you are consenting to being phoned or emailed for scheduling purposes.

Missed Appointment Fee: Counseling Center services are free to all current Towson University students, however we do charge a fee for a missed appointment. Once you have confirmed an appointment, that time is reserved for you. If you do not notify us of your need to cancel the appointment, your student account will be charged $25.

Interview Requests (Class Assignments): In order to ensure adequate availability of counseling services, our clinicians are unable to schedule interviews with students for class projects (e.g. interviewing a clinician about a mental health topic for a class assignment). If you would like information about a mental health topic, please visit Resources by Topic.  


The Counseling Center also seeks to improve the quality of life on campus as a whole. Recognizing that the university community includes people with a wide range of concerns and needs, we provide programs and presentations by request, and offer a full calendar of events during the academic year.
