Crisis Services and Referral

Members of the faculty and staff are often the first to notice changes in the mood, appearance and behavior of their students. If you are concerned about a student's behavior, call the Office of Counseling and Career Services. We provide consultation services to all members of the Northwestern community.

Call the Office of Counseling and Career Services at 357-5621 during office hours 8AM-4:30PM when there is an emergency and you must speak to a counselor. After 4:30PM and on weekends call the University Police at 357-5431 and they will contact a counselor for you.
