Location and Hours


Our offices are open Monday ­– Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

We are open year-round except for NC State holidays.

Most of our services require appointments, but we do offer walk-in hours for certain situations.

Emergency counseling service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. If you need to speak to a counselor outside our business hours, please call 919.515.2423 and select the option to speak with the counselor on-call. They will take your number, and the counselor on-call will call you back right away.


The Counseling Center is located on the second floor of the Student Health Center.

Address: 2815 Cates Avenue at Dan Allen Drive
Phone number: 919.515.2423

Limited services are also available at our Centennial Campus location.


If you plan to arrive at the Student Health Center by bus, the Southeast Loop Route 8 stops on Cates Avenue in front of the Student Health Center. Varsity Route 5, Greek Court Route 9 and Wolflink Shuttle Route 7 stop on Dan Allen Drive just a short walking distance from the Student Health Center. Check the NC State Wolfline Website for current routes, stops, and schedules.


There are a limited number of patient parking spaces behind the Student Health Center. Do not park in “C” permit spaces or unmarked parking spaces so emergency vehicles have access. You will be ticketed and are responsible for the fine. The best way to access the Student Health Center is via the Wolfline.

If you have an appointment, you must obtain a parking permit (hang tag) from the Student Health Center.

Please visit the Counseling Center to obtain a hang tag. You may park in a patient space for a maximum of two hours.

If all patient spaces are full, you can pay to park in the Dan Allen Parking Deck.
