Please call 202-994-5300 to schedule an appointment.

The Health Center is open and operating to assist students who are seeking medical, psychiatric, counseling, and psychological services.


Medical services: Medical providers are providing in-person treatment Monday – Friday, 8:30 am – 5:00 pm by pre-scheduled appointment only. Telehealth appointments are also being offered during regular business hours. Please call 202-994-5300 to schedule an appointment.


Psychiatric services: Our psychiatrists are providing telehealth appointments Monday - Friday, 8:30 am - 5:00 pm. Please call 202-994-5300 and ask to speak with the psychiatric case manager to schedule an appointment.


Counseling Services: Call 202-994-5300 anytime (24 hours a day/seven days a week) to schedule an appointment and learn more about our individualized stepped care model of counseling or talk to an on-call counselor for more urgent mental health needs. Also, Monday – Friday from Noon – 4:00 pm (ET)  counselors are available for an immediate virtual visit where no pre-scheduled appointment is needed. This four hour virtual time period helps to reduce the number of students in the center’s physical waiting room.  Call 202-994-5300 during these hours to be connected to a counselor.

Please Note: The Health Center is closed for in-person and telehealth appointments on university holidays. If the Center is closed during regular business hours, your call to 202-994-5300 will connect you to either the medical or counseling after-hours service.
