Wurster Hall Services

The College of Environmental Design has partnered as a satellite office with Counseling and Psychological Services at the University Health Services (UHS) Tang Center to provide free and confidential consultations by appointment to CED graduate and undergraduate students related to personal, professional and academic concerns. Professional consultation is also available for CED faculty and staff regarding student issues and concerns.

  • Stress and anxiety
  • Depressed moods and low self-esteem
  • Procrastination,  time management and decision-making
  • Family conflicts and pressures
  • Relationship, break-up and intimacy issues
  • Challenges faced by ethnic minority students, first-generation college students, and/or undocumented students
  • Struggles in the “coming out” process for LGBTQI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning, and intersex) students
  • Alcohol and drug abuse
  • Transition, grief and loss

Psychiatrists are also on staff at the Tang Center to provide medication evaluations. Workshops for students and trainings for staff are also provided by request and with advance notice. For more information, see the Counseling and Psychological Services website.
