WELCOME TO WCSU COUNSELING SERVICES
The WCSU Counseling Services offers free and confidential services to the university community. We are currently offering telecounseling sessions for matriculated students, as well as virtual outreach activities for the campus community. Students, faculty, and staff can also request guidance from the Counseling Services if they have concerns about a student or a specific situation.
For more information about counseling, consultation, or educational programming, please call the Counseling Services’ main number at 203-837-8690 during business hours, M-F, 8:30am – 4:30pm (closed 12-1pm). We hope as you are adapting to new and changing circumstances that you and your loved ones are healthy and safe.
The Counseling Services condemns the continued acts of racial violence, including police brutality, in our country. Racially motivated violence, racial injustice, and racial inequity is deeply impactful and a source of great pain and despair. The Counseling Services is committed to having a significant role in the healing process from racial trauma. We encourage the university community to reach out for support and please know that the staff at Counseling Services are available.
