Our top priority is the safety of our students. Due to COVID-19, most student service offices will provide virtual resources. Please check with individual department websites for more information and status updates.
Feeling safe is fundamental to student success. Rutgers University offers 24/7 emergency response services for public safety, medical and psychological concerns, fire, and support for those impacted by interpersonal violence or other crimes. We recognize that the university is large and complex, and often it is difficult to know which office to call. If it is an urgent and immediate issue, help is a phone call or text away.
As member of our academic community, we want each and every student to know the resources for themselves and also to help others for whom there is a concern. In addition to urgent needs, offices provide options for walk-in or scheduled appointments for advice or counseling services. If you find yourself needing help navigating college life, an interpersonal issue, or your emotions, or if you are concerned for someone else, check out these resources. We are here for you, so please call and let us know so we can help. We are committed to your safety, well-being and success.
