During the Online Academic Continuation period, counselors will be available for phone consultations during normal college business hours (M-F 8:30am-4:30pm).

To connect with a counselor, please call the Counseling Center at 716-888-2620 or email and a counselor will get back to you as soon as possible during college business hours.

In the case of a mental health emergency, a counselor on call is available after college business hours. To contact the counselor on call, call Public Safety at (716) 888-2330. For those living in Erie County, you can also call Crisis Services’ 24-hour hotline at 716-834-3131.

To help students manage and cope during this time, we will be posting resources on the Counseling Center Facebook page.
