Counseling Center

With the recent news about the spread of the novel coronavirus (also known as COVID-19), we are aware of the potential impact on many in our community at Towson University. Please consider reaching out to the Counseling Center if you are experiencing anxiety, feelings of hopelessness or unhealthy coping behaviors.

Contacting the Counseling Center

In response to COVID-19, Towson University is open with limited services. Although you can’t visit our office in person, we’re still available during normal business hours by email, 

If you would like to speak with a clinician, call 410-704-2512 and leave a message and include your name, email address, phone number, and TU ID. A representative will respond to your call or email as quickly as possible.

Responses will come via email. Clicking “View Message” in the email will direct you to a link that allows immediate audio contact with a clinician.

If you are experiencing a mental health emergency call TUPD at 410-704-4444 or call 911.

For information about upcoming virtual workshops on healthy coping and other topics, please check our Mental Health & Wellness Resources for COVID-19 page.


If you are unsure if you or a friend needs help, please watch Emotion 101, a video created by the Half of Us campaign to encourage students to get help and remind them that it is okay to seek help.

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.

Counseling Center Diversity Statement

The staff members of the Towson University Counseling Center strive to affirm, promote and celebrate diversity. We are committed to be aware of and understand diversity in its broadest sense.

The staff at the Counseling Center values the importance of diversity for all individuals. People from every background are affected by issues of culture. Multicultural competence is therefore an essential component of our work with every client.

We all benefit from an understanding of how power, privilege, cultural identities (e.g. gender identity, race, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, nationality, social class, and many others) and individual differences affect our daily experiences.

We recognize that students come to the center at various levels of comfort with these identities and therefore, make it a priority to meet students where they are. All of our lives are enhanced by a better understanding of the diverse world in which we live.
