The University Counseling Service (UCS) is an on-campus resource to support your mental health.
There are a variety of services to meet the myriad student needs at Howard University.
At UCS, we direct students to services depending upon their needs, available times, and the best standard of care. In-house services include one-on-one sessions with a counselor, group therapy sessions, and medication management. In some cases, UCS may refer students to off-campus services.
As a first step, you will meet with a staff member for an intake. This brief, informal meeting is used to discuss your needs so we can determine the most appropriate services for you. Please plan to spend approximately 90 minutes to complete the intake process at UCS. This will include completing forms, wait time, and the intake itself.
