Scheduling appointments

Students can schedule appointments by contacting Student Counseling Services in person, by calling 860-439-4587 or by emailing (Please note that this email address is intended only for appointment scheduling and should not be used to send personal mental health information). Students are assigned to a counselor for an initial evaluation. If ongoing counseling seems appropriate after the initial evaluation, the staff may recommend individual or group psychotherapy or both. Some students may be referred to the consulting psychiatric APRN for medication evaluation. In some cases, students may be referred to off-campus service providers for more intensive or specialized treatment. We will make every effort to see students with immediate needs promptly.

Missed appointments

Because the demand for counseling appointments is considerable, a 24-hour notice is required to cancel an appointment. Students who do not keep a scheduled appointment or who cancel the appointment without appropriate notice will be charged a $25 fee for missed appointments. To cancel an appointment, call 860-439-4587 or email

After hours

Students needing assistance after our regular business hours may still access care through our new after-hours service. Just call us at 860-439-4587 and press 2 to reach a counselor. Students on campus having mental health emergencies after hours should contact their Housefellow, House Governor or Campus Safety for support or to access other services. The Administrator-On-Call will contact the On-Call Student Counseling Services counselor as needed.
