Same‐day emergency appointments are available for situations involving danger to self or others, recent experiences of sexual misconduct, or a recent physical assault. To access one of these appointments, students should come to the Counseling Center in‐person and request an emergency appointment at the front desk. Our office coordinator will be happy to offer assistance.
For emergency assistance after normal business hours, via telephone, students should contact the Counseling Center main number (518‐580‐5555) and follow the prompts to access the appropriate resource.
