COVID-19 Counseling Center Updates

Remote Access Services offered during COVID-Pandemic

We recognize the tremendous impact that the pandemic has had on the UNC student body and community at large. We have been working diligently to shift our operations to ensure ongoing support for the community and for the safety of students and staff. We have transitioned to services by phone or online. No in-person appointments will be scheduled until further notice.

The counseling center is available during normal business hours (Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.)  as counselor availability allows.

Please be advised that all students, faculty, or staff receiving services via phone or online must be present in the state of Colorado at the time of the appointment. If you are currently out of state, our staff will work with you to provide support and identify local resources and referral options. We encourage you to continue to check here for additional updates as the situation evolves. 

COVID-19 Safety at UNC

UNC will always prioritize student and campus community health and safety. UNC has been actively monitoring the evolving Coronavirus situation at a university level and is providing regular updates on our COVID-19 website.
