We provide individual evidence-based, solution-focused short-term counseling and services for on-campus undergraduate and graduate students in degree-granting programs. Our counselors are sensitive to issues of ethnicity, spirituality, culture, sexual orientation, gender, disability, learning differences, and body image.

Counseling sessions are confidential, and not part of your academic record.

Crisis Response

An off-campus resource, available 24 hours/day at 1 (888) 568-1112.

If you are a Portland or Biddeford campus-affiliated student and are currently experiencing a mental health crisis, you can reach UNE’s on-call counselor by calling (207) 602-2549 and then pressing 6.

  • Pregnancy
  • Relationships
  • Self-injurious behavior
  • Sexual orientation
  • Sexual violence
  • Sleep hygiene
  • Substance use
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Trauma
  • Violence

Sessions are scheduled by appointment, and we respond to emergencies and crises.

If you have an emergency after business hours, please contact us at (207) 602-2549 and press 6 to speak with an on-call therapist.

Conflict Resolution

Conflict is a natural result of transition, growth, changing environments, and personality differences. Conflict Resolution Services are designed to help students, faculty, and staff resolve or manage disputes with the assistance of a neutral party. We can help assess the issue, diffuse the hostility, and problem solve. Additionally, our staff offer workshops and other training to members of the University community.

Consultation and Outreach

Our staff is specially trained in group dynamics, conflict resolution, and interpersonal communication. We provide consultation to students, staff, and faculty groups. Our counselors are also available to offer training and various workshops to faculty, professional staff, and students of the University community.



8 a.m.–4:30 p.m.

Schedule an Appointment

Students can generally be seen within a week of their initial request and under emergency circumstances, can often be seen during the same day. It is important to us that students who seek our services do so out of their own choice, so we require all students to make their own appointments.
