As communities continue to face incidents of violence across the country the UCC and UHS remain committed to being responsive to our students and campus partners. We are all aware of shootings, bombings and other violence in our city, in the United States and across the world – that seem to happen on a daily basis and sometimes flood our social media and news. We understand that individuals and communities will have different responses to injustices, targeting/profiling, questions about safety, etc. Our identities and backgrounds, in terms of race, religion, gender/sexual identity, national origin and more, make our experience of these events even more complex. At times we find ourselves needing additional support.
We want to remind you that you are not alone and that there are a variety of services available to support you through arduous times. We invite you to reach out to the UCC as needed for emergency same day appointments, individual or group counseling, or tailored outreach programs by request. We can be reached by phone at (585) 275-3113. If you need to speak with someone immediately outside of normal business hours, please contact the UCC Crisis Line at (585) 275-3113 to speak to the therapist on-call.
We applaud the tireless efforts of campus organizations, student groups, and committed individuals who provide spaces for discussion of all forms of inequality at our university and in our world. We invite students to access these many resources.
When our community is shaken by tragic or abhorrent events on campus or beyond, the UCC staff wants to acknowledge the impact of these events on the students we serve.
We hold firm to the values of inclusion, multicultural diversity and social justice.
We seek to foster a community that is safe for all students.

The University Counseling Center (UCC) provides a comprehensive initial assessment and an individualized treatment plan to members of the University of Rochester community who pay the mandatory health fee. Based on the initial assessment, a treatment plan is developed by the clinician that addresses the client's unique needs and concerns. This plan may include recommendations such as, but not limited to: group therapy, workshops, brief therapy, referrals to community provider for specialized treatment or longer term therapy services, Therapist Assisted On-line (TAO), case management services, psychiatry or other campus services.
