Counseling Center
Holthusen Hall, Room 204
(414) 288-7172

The Counseling Center is the mental health clinic on campus staffed by licensed mental health professionals. This group of professionals are experts on college student mental health and provide a variety of support resources to both graduate, professional and undergraduate students on campus. These supports include:  individual and group therapy, limited psychiatric services, and training on mental health topics. Students access our services to address a variety of mental health and emotional issues including anxiety, depression, substance use, eating concerns and trauma. The professional staff help address a variety of non-clinical and developmental issues such as adjustment, academic stress, relationship and identify concerns. In order to remain accessible to all students at Marquette, there are some limits on the amount of services we are able to provide to any one student. If you have a therapist and/or prescriber, we encourage you stay connected to them as much as that is possible. We can provide referrals to community providers if students needs exceed our availability or scope or students prefer that option. We run two specific groups tailored to graduate students each semester: The Gatherings (a support/discussion group for graduate students of color) and Survive & Thrive in Graduate School (for any graduate or professional student).  

Services are free, confidential and easy to access to enrolled students. We are delivering both in person and telehealth visits at this time. Simply call or walk in during the office hours of M-F, 8-430PM to schedule a first appointment called an “initial consultation”. During that appointment, we will assess current concerns and collaboratively determine the next best steps for treatment. If there are critical or urgent concerns, the Counseling Center has walk in hours available when the Center is open; after hours, on weekends and holidays or during University closures, students should call the Counseling Center main line at 414.288.7172 and select Option 2. They will be directed to a trained mental health professional who can offer “in the moment support” and link them to indicated resources.

Pay the per-semester health fee of $170 (known as the “Buy-In” Plan for graduate students).  This entitles students to free core services and core laboratory studies and reduced prices on non-core services. There are no visit charges or copays at the Medical Clinic with the Buy-In Health Fee Plan.  
  2. If you should choose not to pay the Buy-In Plan the MU Medical Clinic allows fee-for-service care. Please note that in addition to the cost of the visit ($55 currently), extra fees apply for medications, lab tests, injections, intravenous fluids, orthopedic supplies, or vaccines.  This will be discussed with you at the time of your time of visit.
