Welcome to the EOU Counseling Center!


*****COVID-19*****

Updated information for Fall Term, 2021!

Welcome back, Mountaineers!

The Student Health and Counseling Center is open for student appointments on September 27, 2021, the first day of classes fall term. The Counseling Center is offering only telehealth sessions during the fall term. To be eligible for counseling services, you need to have paid the Health Service Fee, and be in the state of Oregon at the time of your appointment (as our counselors are licensed/registered to practice therapy only within Oregon). We will be using Zoom’s HIPPA-secured platform for these sessions. To access these services, call 541.962.3524 and let the person at the front desk know that you would like to see a counselor. Your information will be forwarded to the counselors and someone will get back to you. Meanwhile, know that we continue to miss seeing you in person, yet are very grateful for the opportunity to offer Zoom sessions.

Please be aware that Counseling Center staff does not routinely access phone messages or email during non-business hours, and cannot guarantee an immediate response. Therefore, do not use phone messages or email to communicate emergency or urgent needs. If you have an after-hours emergency, please call 911, or the Center for Human Development (CHD) at 541-962-8800.

This information above reflects current Counseling Center services until further notice. All other information on this website may or may not be reflective of current practice. If you have any questions or concerns, please call 541.962.3524.

Helping students heal, grow and reach their goals!

EOU Counseling Center Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Access Statement:

The Counseling Center staff care deeply about the well-being of EOU students. We affirm the dignity, worth, and value of all individuals. We desire to create and hold space for students so they can explore, unpack and live out the very essence of who they are. To accomplish this, we commit to an ongoing process of learning that enables us to provide services that are sensitive to students’ diverse experience of themselves in their world. We humbly acknowledge the original inhabitants of the land Eastern Oregon University is upon: the Cayuse, Umatilla, Walla Walla, and Nez Perce people. We celebrate their traditions, languages, and stories. We acknowledge their continuing connection to this land, water, and community and pay our respects to these original stewards of Northeastern Oregon.

Counseling Center services available to students include:

  • Individual Counseling
  • Crisis Intervention
  • Outreach Services
  • Training and education workshops


If you are interested in utilizing one of our services at the Counseling Center, please visit during one of our drop-in hours:

  • Monday and Wednesday: 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM
  • Tuesday and Thursday: 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM

A counselor should be available to meet with you during these times. Drop-in times are typically the quickest way to meet with a counselor. Arrangements may be made if drop-in times do not work with your schedule.

Drop-in appointments occur on a first-come first serve basis, so we encourage students to come in as early as possible during the drop-in time frame.  If you present during drop-ins and are unable to see a counselor, you are encouraged to come in during another drop-in time. All information shared by clients is confidential, with few exceptions that you can speak with your counselor about.

Please be aware that Counseling Center staff does not routinely access phone messages or email during non-business hours, and cannot guarantee an immediate response. Therefore, do not use phone messages or email to communicate emergency or urgent needs.  If you have an after-hours emergency, please call 911, or the Center for Human Development (CHD) at 541-962-8800.
