During our winter office closure, LUCC staff will not be offering services and will not regularly monitor phones or email. LUCC will re-open at 8:00 AM on Monday, January 5, 2015.

    Between the last day of classes before final exams in December and the first day of classes in January, LUCC is available during regular business hours only for mental health crises potentially involving harm to self or others. During this time period, we will not be providing other regular mental health services or intake appointments. We will resume intake procedures and other counseling services on the first day of classes: January 14, 2015. Returning clients may contact LUCC after January 5 to begin scheduling sessions for the semester. Returning clients must contact LUCC prior to 5:00 PM on Tuesday, January 20, 2015, in order to retain their existing counselor.
