At the University of Evansville, we strive to offer every student the support you need to succeed – both on-campus and after graduation.
Counseling Services offers students counseling services who are experiencing personal adjustment or psychological problems that require professional attention. The counselors assist students with identifying and developing skills that will help them to effectively meet their educational and life goals.

Because interpersonal, psychological, and developmental issues can interfere with learning and – ultimately – with personal success, our office strives to help students overcome those issues through services that include:
Personal Development Counseling
Individual counseling is available for psychological or developmental issues such as school adjustment problems, self-esteem enhancement, depression, anxiety, substance abuse issues, and eating disorders. Health education and wellness programs are offered to assist students in making healthy lifestyle choices during their college careers.
The office is open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday in the Ridgway University Center. Appointments can be made by calling 812-488-2663. Emergency counseling services are available after hours by calling the Office of Safety and Security at 812-488-2051, and asking for the counselor on call.
Information Regarding Sexual Misconduct
Counseling Services personnel are available for support and guidance related to any student sexual misconduct issues.
The Dean of Students area of the UE website provides information on the UE Policy Prohibiting Sexual Misconduct, Educational Information, and On and Off Campus resources, as well as a link to file a formal complaint.
Here is a quick summary of What to do if Sexually Assaulted and Reporting Options.
