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 Accreditation of Counseling Services (IACS).

CAPS Summer Hours

CAPS is excited to announce that we will be open this summer! We will be available in a limited capacity with the goal of serving students staying on campus or in the local area. CAPS will be open Tuesday-Thursday from 8:30am-4pm, starting the week of 5/20. Counseling appointments will be scheduled between the hours of 12pm-4pm. Students are welcome to walk in to register, or contact for online registration.

Off campus mental health and well-being services
The University of Richmond has partnered with TimelyCare to provide virtual mental health and well-being services for free to all students who are eligible to see CAPS. To learn more about TimelyCare, services provided, and eligibility, visit our TimelyCare page.

Students seeking off-campus therapy can use this platform to find community mental health providers, the services they provide, insurances they accept, and their contact information.

Students experiencing a mental-health crisis:
