The Student Counseling Center (SCC) strives to facilitate the total development of students by reducing psychological problems and distress by enhancing mental health, well-being, quality of life, and supporting your aspirations. Our primary focus is on providing brief, confidential counseling aimed at helping students to succeed academically and interpersonally. When students require mental health services that are beyond the role or scope of the SCC, we will make appropriate referrals to campus and community resources.

 All services from the counseling center are free and confidential to SRU students. All students seeking services can call 724.738.2034, email or walk in during office hours to schedule an appointment.


The Student Counseling Center is located within Rhoads Hall, which is number 18 on the campus map.
