The University of Canberra Psychology Service offers an array of options to support your Psychological Health throughout your University experience.

Psychology Services are confidential, free and available exclusively to all currently enrolled UC Students.

Our professional team of psychologists are available between 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday - you can make an appointment by calling 02 6201 2351.

The UC Psychology Service is located in the UC Medical and Counselling Centre in Level B in Building 1.

Emergency information

If you are trying to contact a psychologist on an urgent matter please telephone reception 6201 2351. If your need is particularly urgent, arrangements can be made to offer you an emergency appointment. You can visit reception to be assessed by a nurse. If it is after hours please call one of the following 24/7 hotlines:

  • LifeLine Phone: 131114
  • Mental Health Crisis Service Phone: 1800 629 354
  • University of Canberra Crisis Line Phone: 1300 271 790 or Text: 0488 884 227

Contact with the psychologist between sessions

Contact with your psychologist between sessions is limited, since psychologists are often fully booked during the working day. However, you can leave a message with the reception staff for your psychologist, and the psychologist will get back to you as soon as possible. If you or your psychologist are concerned about your welfare after hours, your psychologist will give you telephone numbers so you can contact 24-hour crisis or emergency services.

Our psychologists have extensive expertise in working with Students in relation to their Psychological Wellbeing; we understand that sometimes you may simply need to talk, while at other times you may want to address more complex issues in your personal life, in your academic experience, along with significant emotional and mental health challenges.
