ULifeline is designed specifically for college students. It's free, confidential and anonymous, and easily accessible 24/7.
The Counseling Center at DigiPen offers short-term individual counseling services to DigiPen students. We work with students struggling with a variety of personal issues. Here are some common concerns:
To schedule an appointment, call the Counseling Center at (425) 629-5015. If no one is available, please leave a voicemail message with your phone number and your call will be returned as soon as possible.

The counseling center is open during Fall and Spring semesters and closed during breaks. Appointments can be made Monday through Friday.
Students are welcome to drop-in, as long as their visits do not conflict with previously scheduled appointments.
Note: The Counseling Center is not the best resource for all problems and situations. We provide services in keeping with DigiPen's goals (student academic success), within our business hours, and in keeping with the structure of the Counseling Center. The Counseling Center does not provide services for those needing long-term intensive psychological treatment, substance-abuse treatment, 24-hour-on-call availability, or whose treatment has been mandated by the legal system or an employer. In these instances we will make appropriate referrals.
