Welcome! Mental health counseling is available at no cost to students enrolled at the University of Portland. Our staff members have experience working with diverse people on a wide range of concerns. Your counselor will work with you individually to determine the goals, duration, and best methods of counseling.
To schedule an appointment with us, you can call 503.943.7134 and say you want to meet with a counselor. The receptionist will work with you to find a day and time that fits your availability. You can also drop by the center (Orrico Hall Upper Level) between 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday and make an appointment in person.
First visits are considered a consultation. These appointments last about 20 minutes and are focused on your immediate concerns, helping connect you with campus resources, and setting up additional care, including ongoing counseling or services off-campus. If counseling within the Health and Counseling Center is a good fit, your next, and subsequent appointments, will be 50 minute office visits.
The current wait for an initial consultation averages 1.5 days.
