Crisis Intervention, Hospitals, and Hotlines
Students can arrange to see a clinician on an emergency basis during weekday business hours by calling 202-885-3500. (Urgent Care Walk-In Hours are available the same day (M-F between 3-5 PM), while non-emergency appointments are generally available within a few days to a week.)
After hours, a Counseling Center clinician can be paged for an emergency consultation by contacting AU Public Safety or a member of the Housing and Dining Services staff. When a crisis occurs that affects the community or a group of community members, Counseling Center clinicians will facilitate crisis-response meetings and consult with students, families, faculty, and staff. After-hours personal crisis support is also available from several 24-7 Hotlines in the DC area listed below.
