The UCC is committed to understanding the role of diverse experiences and backgrounds in order to best promote mental health and wellbeing in the lives of individuals and in our community.

Drop-in Consultations

Drop-in Consultations (formerly Let’s Talk) provide easy access to informal, confidential consultations with UCC counselors. Counselors can provide solutions and referrals to other on-campus and off-campus resources.

The service is open to eligible Vanderbilt University undergraduate, graduate, and professional students*. A Drop-in Consultation is a good fit for students who:

  • Are not sure about counseling and wonder what it’s like to talk with a counselor
  • Are not interested in ongoing counseling but would like the perspective of a counselor
  • Have a specific problem and would like to talk it through with a counselor
  • Have a concern about a friend and want some thoughts about what to do

*Students who have paid the Student Health Fee are eligible for UCC services.

Groups & Workshops

The UCC offers several groups and workshops that provide a supportive and affirming space for students to discuss challenges and build connections. Groups mostly focus on the development of resilience, self-awareness, opportunities to receive and provide feedback about how we relate with others, and includes participants who wish to receive support around a shared identity or lived experience. Some groups require a screening appointment before joining. Workshops mostly focus on the development of everyday skills and do not require a screening (drop-in registration welcome).

Visit the Groups & Workshops page to explore current offerings.


New appointments for UCC services, including for therapy and medication management, are managed through the Student Care Coordination (SCC), located in Rand Hall, Suite 305. After completion of an intake form, the Care Coordinators at the SCC will assess a student’s needs in an in-person or telephone meeting and connect them to the most appropriate resources (including the University Counseling Center) to meet those needs.
