Keeping our Community Healthy

CCSD staff are working to enhance our virtual service offerings while offices remain closed. Please call 302-831-2141 to connect with a staff member during business hours, or use the UD Helpline or Crisis Text Line if you are in need of immediate assistance. Existing clients will be contacted via email and any follow-up calls will come from a restricted number. We look forward to supporting you.  For more information about coronavirus, visit udel.edu/coronavirus.


The Center for Counseling and Student Development (CCSD) is here to support you through empowerment, advocacy, encouraging growth and change, building resilience, and fostering connection and engagement. CCSD programs and services are intended to help with reducing psychological symptoms, coping with life events and developmental tasks, improving interpersonal skills and relationships and increasing self-knowledge and resilience. We are committed to equity and respect for individual and cultural differences. Services are covered by the Student Health Fee that all full-time matriculated students pay.

CCSD is committed to creating an environment where students holding diverse identities feel welcomed, heard and understood. Diversity for us includes but is not limited to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, nationality, socioeconomic status, language, religion, age, disability status, physical appearance, immigration status and political ideology. We believe that diversity in all forms must be celebrated, while also recognizing that individuals who hold one or more intersecting marginalized identities are liable to be impacted by oppressive social forces and systemic disadvantages. CCSD strives to be a system that is aware, sensitive and responsive to individuals being affected by current political circumstances as well as historical forces of influence such as racism, ethnocentrism, homophobia, ableism, classism, anti-Semitism, Islamaphobia and sexism among others.

Emergency Assistance

If you perceive an immediate danger or risk of suicide, call 911 for immediate assistance.

Students can also reach mental health support 24 hours a day on the UD Helpline or the Crisis Text Line.
