Service Updates Heading link

Taking time for your well-being can be helpful in navigating different challenges and coping with stressors. Please know that you do not have to navigate these challenges alone, as UIC offers many resources to support you, including the Counseling Center. We offer a wide range of services including group therapy, brief individual therapy, case management, single sessions, Mind-Body programs, and virtual drop-in spaces. All Counseling Center services are confidential and free of charge to eligible students. 

The Counseling Center is open Monday-Friday from 8:30am-5pm. We offer all of our initial consultations, group therapies, and workshops virtually to provide optimum accessibility and to assure health and safety. Our individual therapy services are available virtually or in person – please talk to your counselor if you are interested in meeting in person. Masks are strongly encouraged during in-person sessions and while in the Counseling Center.
