University Counseling Center (UCC)

Note that the mental health outreach and advocacy program works closely with the Binghamton University Counseling Center

At some point during their college experience, students may encounter personal, social, career or academic issues that call for assistance beyond the advice provided by friends and family. The UCC provides a variety of free and confidential counseling and referral services delivered by professional counselors.
