Counseling Services provides a safe, supportive space for students of all backgrounds, opinions, and concerns, especially during times of uncertainty in our country and the world.

Welcome to Counseling Services

UTSA Counseling Services provides a confidential atmosphere where students may discuss concerns that are important in their lives. Many may be considered normal challenges that we all learn to master as we develop as a person. Some student's concerns may also involve major hurdles that interfere with their ability to manage important life experiences such as relationships, family, work or school.

Counseling Services offers students and the campus community a variety of professional services. You can select specific service areas listed at the top menu under the Services tab to learn more about how these may meet your particular needs. With the exception of a few in-depth assessment tests, services are pre-paid through your student service fee. Find out how to get started!

Services are available for students who are currently registered and enrolled at UTSA. All services are confidential.

Se ofrecen servicios de consejería personal y psiquiatría en español.

Please know that Counseling Services is willing to assist you at any time during the normal work day, or in an emergency, you can access an on-call clinician after hours.
