University Counseling Center
AFTER HOURS COUNSELING AND CONSULTATION
If you are in crisis or are concerned about a student after hours and want assistance before the next business day, you can contact a counselor through the UCC. If it is a life-threatening situation, call 911 or the police. Find more information about contacting a counselor after hours on the web.
The UCC is changing how we communicate! We are now be using an Online Messaging System for online communication! To protect your confidentiality, the UCC staff will use a secure messaging procedure as the main way to communicate with our clients. These messages will be through the Online Student Health Portal. Appointment reminders will also be sent through the Secure Message feature. For details, there are yellow Online Communication sheets available at the UCC front desk, or from your counselor.

What we do

In these turbulent times, many of our students are feeling anxious in the face of the many uncertainties in the current political climate both here and around the world. Some of the students who have been most profoundly impacted are those in our gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer communities. Here at Binghamton University we stand with our students and want to remind the campus community of our support services.
Staff from the University Counseling Center (UCC) are available to students who may be in need of support. The UCC can be reached at 607-777-2772 during normal business hours, 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Students needing assistance after hours should call 607-777-2393 for University Police or 607-762-2302 for the 24-hour Crisis Center at Binghamton General Hospital.
