CU Denver student making an appointment



Making an appointment

Visit the Counseling Center in person (CU Denver Students only)

We are located in the Tivoli 454. Come by during our walk in hours Monday-Thursday between 10-4 or Fridays between 11-2 and sign up for your intake (first appointment). This process can take 15-30 minutes depending on your needs.



Call the Counseling Center at 303-315-7270 (non CU Denver Students)

Please call our center and leave your name and phone number. Our intake coordinator will call you back to schedule an intake (first appointment) that fits your schedule. Intake appointment times vary Monday – Friday from 10:00a.m. to 4:00p.m. 

Appointment Process:​​

Arrive on time​

Computer forms take about 30 minutes to complete. These forms must be completed before you speak with a clinician. If you are more than 15 minutes late to a scheduled appointment, your appointment will need to be rescheduled.​

Intake Appointment

You will meet with a clinician to discuss your personal concerns and counseling services or other recommendations that may be helpful. The initial intake appointment is for information gathering rather than a therapy session and will last 50 minutes.​

After Your Intake Appointment​

If we are the best place for you to continue treatment, the Assistant Director will assign you a clinician (who may or may not be the clinician with whom you completed your intake appointment).​


Meet your Clinician​

You will receive a call or email from your clinician to schedule your first session. We can schedule appointments Monday – Thursday from 8-6 & Fridays from 8-5.

Receive the help you need​

We have a strength based, flexible, brief therapy model. When you are ready for these steps toward support, you can talk with your counselor for 10 sessions.​
