Urgent Care

If your need is urgent during the regular academic year, we offer Urgent Care Hours, Monday-Friday from 11 a.m. to noon.

Our urgent care services are not meant to be drop-in counseling for non-emergencies.

The Brandeis Counseling Center (BCC) is aware that situations requiring immediate attention can exist for students. The BCC is able to provide same-day services in response to such events (i.e., serious mental illness, current or recent traumatic experiences, and life-threatening circumstances).

Urgent care can be used for the following issues:

If your issue does not fit into one of the categories above, please schedule a regular appointment.

If you are not already a client at the BCC, we need you to come about 30 minutes ahead of time to register if you come for urgent care. Once you have your urgent care appointment, you will still need to come back for an intake appointment in order to receive recommendations about the type of services that will best meet your needs.

If your circumstances don’t warrant urgent care, but you are feeling that you could use an evaluation at the next available evaluation time, you can contact us to make an appointment.
