Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) at the University of Richmond offers a wide range of short-term services to currently enrolled, full-time, degree-seeking students, (as well as full-time undergraduate visiting students living on-campus; e.g., exchange students) at the University of Richmond. Over one third of UR students use CAPS services at least once before they graduate. CAPS is fully accredited by the International Association of Counseling Services (IACS).
