S. University Counseling

University Counseling provides short-term, triage based counseling and professional referrals for students as they adjust to life in a college atmosphere.

The staff is comprised of two counselors and an intern and can offer individual, and couples (if both parties are enrolled students at OCU) counseling services. Outside referrals may also be made if the student can benefit from long-term or specialized treatment. Counseling is a confidential process designed to help individuals address concerns, come to a greater self-understanding, and learn effective personal and interpersonal coping strategies.

Students seek counseling services for many reasons. Some of these include symptoms related to anxiety, disordered eating, trauma (which includes being a member of a marginalized group and fearing for personal safety and the safety of others), suicidal ideation, sexual assault, homesickness, depression, LGBTQ+, representation and identity, stress management/mindfulness, social issues, relationship issues, severe and persistent mental health issues, and psychiatric referrals.

Services are free to part and full time students. To make an appointment, you may call the University Counseling office at 405-208-7901, walk in to the office, or contact the counselors directly (click here for contact information). Appointments are highly recommended but accommodations will be made in the event of an emergency. Hours of operation are M-F 8:00a-5:00p during the fall and spring semesters and M-Tr 7:30 a-6p during summer term.

Location: Northwest wing of Walker Hall, enter under the blue awning on the north side.
