Take advantage of ISSS drop-in hours!

ISSS offers drop-in advising hours every Monday through Thursday from 1:30-3:00pm - no appointment needed! 
If you have a relatively brief or urgent question, this is a great time to get it answered.
There are a few specific topics that require a scheduled appointment (government applications such as OPT, university withdrawal, and academic probation discussions). Most other topics can be discussed during drop-in hours, unless your situation is complex or you have a lot of questions. 

For drop-in advising hours, just come to the International Student Center (MacMillan Hall, 017, lower level, enter through parking lot, central entrance) or connect via Zoom to talk with ISSS staff any time between 1:30 pm - 3:00pm on  Monday-Thursday.
Campus Care

Campus Care connects students with trained mental health professionals from Student Counseling Service to discuss mental health concerns in a less formal, more convenient setting at the following times and places:

  • Tuesdays 3:00-4:00 pm - International Student Center, MacMillan Hall, Room 017A (International Student Center)  
  • Wednesdays 4:00-5:00 pm - Center for Student Diversity & Inclusion, 3033 Armstrong Student Center Conference Room
  • Thursdays 1:00-2:00 pm  - Center for Student Diversity & Inclusion, 3033 Armstrong Student Center Conference Room
No appointment is necessary and there is no fee. Students are seen on a first-come, first-served basis. Usually there is not much of a wait. Conversations are typically about 15 minutes long or less.
Campus Care is open to all Oxford campus graduate and undergraduate students and is the best fit for the following people:
  • Students who are not sure about counseling and wonder what it is like to talk with a mental health professional.
  • Students who are not interested in ongoing counseling but would like the perspective of a mental health professional.
  • Students who have a specific problem and would like someone with whom to discuss it.
  • Students who have a concern about a friend and want ideas about what to do.
