Getting Started

To connect with EKUCC services, call (859) 622-1303, or stop by the office at Room 571 Whitlock Building to schedule an initial assessment during office hours. Office hours are Mon-Fri 8:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m. (Fall and Spring semester hours) and Monday-Thursday 7:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m. (Summer semester hours). EKUCC services are available to currently enrolled EKU students and (during the summer) students enrolled in summser sessions or students attended EKU in the previous Spring semester and who are also enrolled for the subsequent Fall semester. 

The Eastern Kentucky University Counseling Center (EKUCC) offers after hours mental health support and crisis services to an EKU student or any person concerned about an EKU student. This 24/7 mental health support service is available weekends, evenings, holidays, and during university closures. The after hours support and crisis line 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. When appropriate, EKUCC staff will follow up with the caller on the university’s next business day.

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.
