There may be times when you need extra support to cope more effectively with a personal or emotional issue. The staff at the Center for Counseling and Consultation (CCC) is dedicated to helping students with a whole range of challenges that may interfere with the ability to live well, relate to others, and succeed academically.
St. John's offers free and confidential services to all students on the Queens and Staten Island campuses. You can get treated for minor illnesses and injuries. If there is a need for any additional testing, such as X-rays or blood work, we can assist you in finding an off-campus local health provider.
Campus ministers are excellent resources and are always available for couseling, spiritual guidance, supportive service or referral information. Some live in the Residence Halls while others travel with the athletic teams. All seek to be a pastoral, supportive presence with all students on the journey through St. John's University that leads to personal, spiritual and professional growth. Feel free to stop by any Campus Ministry office.
