About the EOU Counseling Center

Students come to the Counseling Center for a variety of reasons. Some are looking for help in coping with the pressures associated with a challenging academic environment or adjustment to college life. Others want to learn how to be more effective in developing, negotiating, or maintaining relationships with others. Counseling can be beneficial for students who are feeling depressed or anxious, as well as those who want to examine their beliefs or explore their current life situation.

The Counseling Center offers students the opportunity to look at themselves and their environment and to change the way they think, feel, and behave so that they can make the most of their time at EOU.

Counseling services are free to currently enrolled graduate and undergraduate students who are assessed the Health Service Fee. The Health Service Fee is assessed each term to students taking at least 6 credits and one of those credits is on-campus.

Counseling Center services available to students include:

  • Individual counseling

  • Couples counseling

  • Crisis intervention

  • Group counseling

  • Training and education workshops

All information shared by clients is confidential, with few exceptions that you can speak with your counselor about. Unless it’s an emergency situation, information is not shared with other campus services or your parents without your specific written consent.

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 will be available to help you during these times. If these hours do not fit into your schedule, please call 541-962-3524 to set up a special appointment at another time.

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, we advise against the use of phone messages or email to communicate emergency or urgent needs.  If this is an after-hours emergency, please call campus security at 541-962-3911 or call 911.
