Hours

Update:

In response to precautionary measures associated with COVID-19, we ask that all students seeking services call in advance to schedule an appointment. We are offering opportunities for in-person sessions and remote telemedicine sessions. Please see below for more information.


Office Hours

During the academic semester, the office is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday and Wednesday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday. Additional group programs may be offered throughout the week after office hours. Hours of operation during the January intersession are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Summer office hours are Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Friday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

If you are a Hofstra University student and experience a psychological emergency on campus during non-business hours, please contact Hofstra's Department of Public Safety at (516) 463-6789, where an officer can contact an on-call counselor or the nearest emergency room.

Eligibility

All services are provided at no cost. We ask that all students seeking services call at 516-463-6745. Students can be seen for sessions on-site at Student Counseling Services or remotely through telemedicine via secure video conferencing.

Students who are seeking remote telemedicine appointments can schedule an appointment for a brief phone screening. During phone screening, a member of our treatment team will briefly assess concerns and discuss treatment options. All students who wish to be seen remotely must receive phone screening.

Eligibility for short-term individual therapy is evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Factors affecting eligibility include a student’s needs, student’s location, and session availability. Students may be referred to short-term individual therapy, participation in skill-building groups, or to an off-campus provider.
