Getting Started

Currently, all sessions are being conducted virtually, to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. 

The EKU Counseling Center is located in Room 571 in the Whitlock Bldg. Office ph: (859) 622-1303 (TTY: 859-622-1305). EKUCC services are available to currently enrolled EKU students. 

To connect with EKUCC services, the Center provides initial assessments on a first-come-first-serve basis Mon-Fri 8:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Call the center during these times to get started.

The Eastern Kentucky University Counseling Center (EKUCC) now offers after hours support to an EKU student or any person concerned about an EKU student. This is an extension of EKUCC services and can assist a caller in any mental health crisis situation. When appropriate, EKUCC staff will follow up with the caller on the university’s next business day.

EKUCC After Hours is available weekends, evenings, holidays, and during university closures. This new service augments the existing full spectrum of clinical services provided at the EKU Counseling Center and extends the reach to more students, at critical times after hours when they may need the services.

To access EKUCC After Hours Urgent Support, please call (859) 622-1303.

If you need emergency assistance, please call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.
