Satellite Offices

Counseling Satellite Locations

We understand that connecting with students in other locations on campus serves to break down potential barriers to seeking support. Cultural issues and the stigma of counseling can be barriers. For other students, the Tang Center can feel too far, or too formal a setting. Some graduate students can feel uncomfortable running into the undergraduate students they teach. Making contact with a counselor at a satellite office can help demystify the services provided at CAPS and UHS.

  • Most locations are only offering virtual counseling at this time, please see below for how to connect with specific counselors. 
  • Counselors are also available through the Let's Talk program
  • Students who are seeking support at closed offices or are needing help sooner should call CAPS at (510) 642-9494 to speak with a counselor.
  • If you are needing help when CAPS is closed, please call the after-hours crisis line at (855) 817-5667.
