Services are always free and confidential, and if students need guidance, support, or just someone to talk to, they’re encouraged to contact the Student Development & Counseling Center (SDCC) to set up an appointment for individual, couples, or group counseling. We're open Monday-Friday from 8:00 am-5:00 pm, with walk-in hours from 1:00 pm-2:00 pm.
The SDCC is dedicated to creating an inclusive, respectful, and comfortable environment where students can share openly and work with counselors to set goals, identify obstacles, and move in a positive direction. Confidentiality is taken very seriously, and only under certain, very specific conditions—outlined in the confidentiality policy (PDF)—will counselors share information outside of the SDCC.
Students interested in learning the best ways to help their peers during times of crisis are encouraged to join the Student Support Network, Active Minds @ WPI, Students Preventing Assault and Rape in Our Community (SPARC), or Promoting Alcohol and Substance Safety (PASS).
