Student Counselling. A Friendly Listening Ear
The role of the Counselling Service is to assist your academic and personal development. Student counsellors provide a comprehensive, professional, confidential counselling service, free of charge.
The Counselling Service can help you deal with the wide range of problems common to any student population, e.g. personal problems, vocational uncertainty, family problems and examination anxiety. Psychotherapy is also provided where appropriate.
The Counselling Service is free of charge and provides a daily drop-in time during term time from 11.00-12.00 and 3.00-4.00 for students to call, without appointment, to Room CM073. The service also delivers 10 psycho-educational classes each week as an integral part of its programme.

The UL Chaplaincy works to meet the many
and varied needs of a global university campus.
We recognise that life at UL is a dynamic, everchanging
experience, which brings all kinds of
new opportunities and challenges to students.
As chaplains, we offer a welcoming space and
a supportive presence to students and staff.
We promote an open and caring environment
where diversity is respected. Our key activities
Students are welcome to visit Teach Fáilte, our drop- in centre in the Students’ Square. This centre is driven by, and responds to the needs of all students equally and is one of the busiest and most welcoming students’ hubs on campus. We are open daily from 10.30am to 4.30pm. Individuals or groups are welcome for a casual cuppa and chat. In times of difficulty students are assured of a listening ear and we can advise you about other supports available, either
on or off campus. The Contemplative Centre (opposite the ULSU) is an oasis of peace and tranquillity for those who wish to take time to reflect, pray or listen to sacred music. Religious services are provided throughout the academic year. Visit us on Facebook and www.ul.ie/ chaplain

The Student Health Centre
An acute care advisory service is provided to all registered students. This service includes a full time nursing service and daily attendance by doctors. A consultant psychiatrist and chartered physiotherapist are available through internal referral.
The emphasis of the University’s health services is on prevention rather than cure; you will be encouraged to participate actively in the wide range of physical and recreational activities in the University which encourage a balanced approach to a healthy and wholesome lifestyle.
