University Counseling and Wellbeing Center (636 Fisher Hall)
The University Counseling and Wellbeing Center (UCWC) establishes itself on a philosophy of life that is congruent with the University Mission. We view the student in terms of his/her striving for contentment, happiness, and flourishing. Our goal is to provide services and resources that will enable the student to live a meaningful life based on a mind/body/spirit approach to wellbeing, an approach that honors the fundamental dignity of the human person by valuing him/her in his/her totality.
The UCWC offers free confidential personal psychotherapy to all currently enrolled Duquesne students. Confidential short-term personal psychotherapy is provided for a variety of reasons, such as difficulty adjusting to college life, personal and/or emotional distress, homesickness, test anxiety, sleep disturbances, etc. Students in need of more frequent, long-term psychotherapy will work with our case manager to find resources that will meet his/her needs.
Crisis Support is available from the University Counseling and Wellbeing Center 24/7 by calling the University police emergency number, 412-396-2677 (COPS).
