Welcome to our web site! The Counseling Center at Drexel University exists to provide students with services and programming designed to meet their unique needs. Our mission is to support the academic goals of the University through assisting students with personal challenges that interfere with their academic progress, and to promote and foster the academic, personal, and interpersonal development of our students. Our goal is to offer the personal care students need in a warm, professional, and comfortable atmosphere.
The Counseling Center offers free, confidential counseling services to full-time undergraduate or graduate students who are currently enrolled at Drexel.

The Counseling Center has two locations. On the University City Campus we are located in Room 201 on the second floor of the Creese Student Center, and on the Center City Campus we are located in Suite 315 of the Bellet Building.

The Counseling Center is open Monday – Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and on Fridays from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. We are closed on all official University holidays.
While we strive to meet the needs of all students, there are situations in which we may need to work with a student to assist with a referral to an outside agency or practitioner. In some cases, students may have needs that are beyond the scope of what we can offer. In other cases, students may reach a pre-established session limit (15 sessions per academic year) but continue to have needs for additional counseling. In both instances we work to connect students with appropriate resources in the region.
The staff of the Drexel University Counseling Center is committed to offering a safe, welcoming environment for all students regardless of their racial or ethnic identity, culture, nationality, socioeconomic status, religious or spiritual beliefs, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, and/or physical ability. We highly value diversity and aspire to create a respectful, safe space for all students.
