Making an Appointment

To schedule an appointment, call (859) 257-8701, during our business hours 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM Monday - Friday, or come to 201 Frazee Hall and request an appointment. For more on what to expect in the first appointment, go to the Frequently Asked Questions page.

**We have recently changed our attendance policy in order to best utilize our clinical appointment slots and meet student demand for services. If a student does not attend an individual appointment (including an initial intake) and failed to cancel it by 4 pm of the prior business day, it will be counted as a no-show. When a person reaches 3 no-shows, he or she will be no longer eligible for ongoing individual services at the Counseling Center and may be offered other alternatives such as drop-in workshops and community referrals.

Our Location

We are on the second and third floors of Frazee Hall, on Administration Drive next to the Student Center. Find us on the campus map.

Eligibility

All counseling services are offered to fee-paying students who are enrolled for at least six credit hours at UK, in undergraduate, graduate or professional programs. Doctoral candidates in dissertation status are also eligible. Advanced graduate students enrolled in either zero credit hour status or the two-hour residency course (767) are also eligible. During the summer, students must meet one of two criteria: be enrolled for the previous spring semester and the upcoming fall semester; or be enrolled for at least one credit during either summer session.

Confidentiality

Our records are separate from all other university records. We do not reveal any information about anyone using our services unless that person gives us written permission to do so or unless required by law.

Sometimes it is in a client's best interest for information to be shared with a third party. If you would like for the Counseling Center to share information with specific individuals or offices, the release form (Form is a PDF document.) may be completed, signed, and hand-delivered, faxed to (859) 257-3319, or mailed to the Counseling Center at 201 Frazee Hall Lexington, KY 40506-0031. If this form is faxed or mailed, we may require independent verification from the client that this release is authentic and should be acted upon.
