Counseling Services

The college experience will be emotionally challenging at times. Counseling Services compassionately provides free, accessible, and confidential assistance to all enrolled Trinity students.

We have designed our services to fulfill our mission: To support the educational and personal success of Trinity University students when they encounter developmental, interpersonal, or psychological challenges. Whether those challenges are homesickness, coping with a break-up, anxiety, depression, or other mental health issues, Counseling Services is eager to collaborate with a student in need.

How a Student Can See a Counselor

A student who has never utilized Counseling Services can see a counselor for a 20-minute consultation and assessment during Walk-in Hours any weekday afternoon between 1:30 and 4:30 on a first-come, first-seen basis. (Any subsequent 45-minute sessions would be by appointment.) If the student’s schedule cannot accommodate the consultation and assessment during any weekday afternoon, please call to inquire about alternatives.  

Occasionally, Walk-In Hours must be canceled due to illness, so a student may wish to call to verify that Walk-In Hours will be held that afternoon. If a student wishes to see a specific counselor for their consultation and assessment, the student should call to learn which afternoons the desired counselor will be on duty during Walk-In Hours. Profiles of our counselors are available on the ‘Meet the Staff’ webpage

Learn more about what happens during the consultation and assessment visit to our office at the ‘About Our Services’ webpage.

What We Offer Concerned Parents and Others

A person who is concerned about a student may consult with a counselor for guidance.

A concerned person may benefit from the guidance offered at the ‘If You Are Concerned about a Student’ webpage.
