Student Services

The Towson University Counseling Center (TUCC) offers currently enrolled students several different kinds of help, starting with a private and confidential initial meeting with a counselor.

The Counseling Center utilizes a Flexible Care treatment model, which is an adaptive, customizable approach to college student mental health. We strive to provide on-demand help as quickly as possible that to meet every students’ unique needs.

We offer many types of services including self-help programs, massage chairs, peer support, wellness workshops, meditation services, support groups, therapy groups, same-day mental health consultations, solution-focused support, and referrals services. Many of our services can be accessed without even having to make an appointment with a therapist.

For students who would like to meet one-on-one with a therapist, we offer same-day 30-minute appointments available every day throughout the semester. Students can book the same day they call, so that we can help students when they need us the most. To speak with a therapist, students should call the Center. Our friendly office staff will assist them to make a same-day appointment. Therapists will take a solution-focused approach by helping students with their immediate concern. Students will leave each appointment with a customized and culturally-responsive plan for pursuing their mental health and wellness goals. This might include connecting students to one or more of our many services, encouraging them to follow up as needed, or connecting them with campus resources.

Please call TUCC at 410-704-2512 if you have questions or would like to schedule an appointment during normal business hours (Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 5:00 pm, except for lunch, 12:00 - 1:00 pm EST).
