The Cal U Counseling Center

The Cal U Counseling Center remains committed to supporting student emotional well-being and resilience. Due to the Covid-19 response, the Cal U Counseling Center will adjust its operations until the remainder of the spring term. Further changes may be required as Cal U and PASSHE directives change. At present, the center is not open to in-person counseling appointments or walk-in service requests. Group therapy will be suspended during this time period. Group members with questions may reach out to their group facilitator via email.

The Cal U Counseling Center will be accessible via email and telephone for scheduled consultations and ongoing therapy appointments. We can also assist with finding a therapist or mental health resources close to your current location. If you would like to schedule a consultation, please contact us at 724.938.4056 or one of the following faculty counselors:
