Counseling Services

The Kean Counseling Center is designed to assist students in all areas of psychological counseling. The center provides individually tailored psychotherapy services and programs to address mental health issues which can impinge on academic performance such as:

  • Personal development related to family concerns
  • Childhood trauma
    • Personal development related to family concerns
  • Sexual identity
  • Eating disorders
  • Self-esteem
  • Peer and relational difficulties
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Sexual assault or rape
Anxiety and Depression are frequent concerns of our students that are addressed through the use of psychotherapy. When indicated, medication may be suggested and a consultation with the psychiatrist can be arraigned.

Psychiatric Consultation

A part-time psychiatrist is available for consultation when further evaluation and/or medication are needed. These services are an option for individuals who are actively involved in ongoing treatment with one of the counseling center staff.

Eligibility for Services

The services of the Kean Counseling Center are available for all Kean Universiy students and are free of charge.



All records of the Kean Counseling Center are private and confidential. When someone comes to the center the information gathered does not become part of a permanent University record or personnel file.  Nor does information gathered appear on any transcript or official document of any type. No one in the University or any other individual will be given information about a student without that person’s written consent.

Making an Appointment

The Kean Counseling Center is open Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the fall and spring semesters and 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. during the summer. An appointment to see a counselor can be made either by calling 908-737-4850 or by stopping in at our office located in Downs Hall, room 127. We request that students arrive 15 minutes early for their first appointment. The center makes every effort to schedule students within a week of their initial call. Urgency of need is taken into account when scheduling an appointment.
