Student Counseling


We strongly encourage any student located on-campus in need of urgent counseling support after hours to contact Hofstra’s Department of Public Safety at 516-463-6789. The Department of Public Safety can connect the student with an on-call counselor from Student Counseling Services. For urgent care off-campus, students should call 911 or go to the nearest hospital emergency room. The following are additional resources that may be useful to off-campus students in urgent need of mental health services.
