The goal of the University Counseling Center (UCC) is to assist students in meeting the challenges that are an integral part of their Notre Dame experience. Our professional staff of licensed psychologists, social workers, psychiatric providers, and masters-level psychologists-in-training are highly skilled in helping students address the difficulties they may encounter, and empowering them to make the most of the opportunities available to them at Notre Dame. We specialize in treating the mental health concerns that are prevalent in a diverse university student body.

The UCC offers a broad range of services to currently enrolled and degree-seeking undergraduate and graduate students. All services are free of charge and confidential.

Campus Ministry

Rooted in the Catholic tradition and inspired by the charism and spirituality of the Congregation of Holy Cross, the Campus Ministry is committed to cultivating the faith of all Notre Dame students. Through undergraduate, graduate, liturgical and music ministries, we foster personal spiritual growth, encourage participation in the sacramental and liturgical life of the Church, support other forms of worship and personal prayer, provide opportunities for pilgrimages, retreats and service, and seek to enhance and develop lifelong faith formation.

Center for the Study of Languages and Culture

In addition, the Center maintains a wide array of languages resources (including a language library), hosts language events, and conducts research to explore ways technology can enhance language acquisition. The English for Academic Purposes (EAP) Program has been particularly useful for many ASAP & Exchange Students.The goal of the program is to empower international students to maximize their academic success through coursework, tutoring, and self-study resources.

Hesburgh Library

The Hesburgh Library is not only a popular place for students to study, it has a multitude of services available to students. The library is a centerpiece of Notre Dame’s intellectual pursuits and an enduring symbol of the University’s commitment to academic excellence.
