Counseling and Psychological Services promotes overall health and well being by helping students overcome obstacles that may otherwise prevent them from attaining academic, personal, and professional goals. Our mission is to foster the psychological health and well-being of our students in order to enable them to thrive, develop, and achieve academic success. We embrace the diversity that is embodied in the community we serve, and we acknowledge that the individual needs of our students are unique. Thus we treat each person with respect and dignity. Through collaboration with others across Seton Hall, we work to provide programs and services that build a supportive community for all.
We provide free year-round counseling, crisis intervention, consultation, and referral services to the Seton Hall University community. All matriculated students, including undergraduate, graduate, law, and seminary students, are eligible for direct services. Direct services include individual and group counseling. We offer short-term, individual counseling with 12 maximum sessions per academic year. The duration of participation in group counseling is unlimited. University faculty, staff, administrators, and alumni can receive referrals and consultations.
Students seeking counseling are encouraged to call to set up an appointment at (973) 761-9500. Students may also stop by in-person and request to meet with a counselor. Our offices are located on the second Floor of Mooney Hall. We are open Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Limited evening hours are available by appointment only. Counselors are available after hours (between 5 p.m. - 9 a.m. weekdays and on weekends) for emergency phone consultation and crisis intervention. To reach an on-call counselor, please contact Public Safety at (973) 761-9300.
In addition to our clinical services, student groups and organizations can request psycho-educational presentations, programs, and workshops that can help to enhance the interactions, performance, and well-being of their members.
