Counseling and Wellbeing Center

The University Counseling and Wellbeing Center is located in Room 636 of Fisher Hall.

The University Counseling and Wellbeing Center 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 University Counseling and Wellbeing Center 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. Psychiatric consultation and services are available as needed. Crisis Support is available from the University Counseling and Wellbeing Center 24/7 by calling the University police emergency number, 412-396-2677 (COPS).

A variety of support groups and workshops are available on request for topics of current interest, such as time management, stress management, test anxiety, eating disorders, cultural diversity, or specific topics can be requested. Biofeedback sessions are also available.

An interfaith meditation room is available for all students, faculty, and staff regardless of faith tradition or lack thereof.
