WHERE ARE WE LOCATED?

Our space is above South Campus Dining Hall (room 3105) at University of Maryland, College Park. You can find us by taking the stairs located to the right of the dining hallโ€™s main entrance.

WHO ARE WE?

Help Center is University of Marylandโ€™s student-run peer counseling and crisis intervention hotline that provides free and confidential help to the UMD community. Anyone can call and be connected to student counselors who are trained to help with any problems you may be facing.

You donโ€™t have to provide your name or any identifying information โ€“ all calls made to Help Center are kept strictly confidential. We welcome all callers; no issue is too big or small. We also provide drop-in counseling and free, confidential pregnancy tests without an appointment.

No problem is too big or too small to be heard. You matter, and we’re here to listen.


WHAT SERVICES DO WE OFFER?

All of our services are 100% free, anonymous, and confidential.

DROP-IN SERVICES

Help Center offers peer-to-peer counseling by Drop-in. No appointment is needed, but it can be helpful to call ahead to ensure that a counselor will be available to speak with you right away. We are located on the third floor of the South Campus Diner in room 3105.
