Counseling and Support

Syracuse University strives to be a place that feels like home.


Our counseling team at the Barnes Center at The Arch offers you a strong support network of staff therapists who are dedicated to your well-being. This counseling is completely confidential, and just a phone call away. Even if it’s just managing the stress that can come with being a college student, we’ll help you face challenges and navigate through university life. The experienced and licensed counseling staff is available 24 hours a day for issues such as mental health and substance abuse.

The Office of Student Assistance

The Office of Student Assistance is a central support hub for students and families. Professionals can help address crises and life trauma, psychological, physical or relationship issues, social adjustment, and more. Services include absence notifications, bias-related support, emergency loans, and more.
