Welcome to the Counseling Center at DigiPen! This page provides you with a brief overview of the student services we offer.
If you have an immediate crisis, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. You can also contact the Crisis Line (Crisis Clinic of Seattle) toll free 24 hours a day at (866) 4-CRISIS or (866) 427-4747.
The Counseling Center is located in the Administration Offices area on the second floor. To make an appointment, or for questions about Counseling Center services and policies, contact the Counseling Center at counseling[at]digipen[dot]edu or (425) 629-5015.
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.
