Concerns may include: wanting a third party to mediate a conflict, needing emotional support through a conflict, having conflict with a friend or family member.
The Center for Student Conflict Management helps students become positive community members during their college careers and beyond through:
Education about the MELIORA values of the University of Rochester by holding students personally accountable to the community through our conduct system, by offering access to and training in conflict resolution processes.
Coordination of support for students who may be significantly struggling at the University with the assistance of our CARE network
Everyone experiences difficulties throughout their college experience, but speaking up and asking for support can enable you or a fellow peer to build resilience and thrive. CARE is here for all students at the UR. Whether you are seeking support for a friend, or yourself, we encourage you to submit a CARE Referral to connect with appropriate forms of support and resources to maintain wellness and achieve goals.
CARE can be of assistance by supplying students with options for support while also aiding individuals who support the student in need.
At Rochester, the CARE Network helps to identify students in, or heading toward, distress. With timely and appropriate support, we can ensure our students have access to the resources and services they need to thrive. As members of the UR community, we rely on you—the eyes and ears of our campus—to help make sure our students are supported.
Chaplains are available for counseling and advising on a variety of emotional and spiritual issues, including grief, loss, depression, sexuality, relationships, academic anxieties, family conflicts. Confidential, one on one support is available to students in times of stress, need, spiritual or emotional crisis.
The University has twelve religious or spiritual groups or communities currently affiliated with the Interfaith Chapel: Jewish, Christian (Protestant, and Catholic), Muslim, and Buddhist traditions and can help connect students to community resources in Hindu, Baha'i, Sikh, Mormon and other religious traditions.
We manage 36 residence halls for both first year and upperclass students, including special interest floors, academic living centers, fraternities, sororities, and hall councils. Each residence hall features coeducational living arrangements.
Our residence halls are either corridor-style, comprised of double and single rooms or suites and apartment-style that offer smaller living group opportunities in two-, three-, and four-person apartments that are a combination of single and double rooms. Kitchens and lounges very by building type. Laundry is provided in each building.
Professional-staff in each building offer support and resource referral to assist with the transition to living on campus; and social and educational opportunities designed to strengthen residence hall communities.

The University Counseling Center (UCC) provides a comprehensive initial assessment and an individualized treatment plan to full-time members of the University of Rochester community who pay the mandatory health fee. Based on the initial assessment, a treatment plan is developed by the clinician that addresses the client’s unique needs and concerns. This plan may include recommendations such as, but not limited to: group therapy, workshops, brief therapy, referrals to community provider for specialized treatment or longer term therapy services, Therapist Assisted On-line (TAO), case management services, psychiatry or other campus services.
Our therapists are licensed professionals and professionals-in-training from a variety of mental health disciplines. They employ many treatment approaches and draw upon a wide range of training and experiences in the field of psychotherapy.
Our consulting psychiatrists are available for psychiatric evaluations and ongoing medication management. All psychiatry appointments require a referral from a UCC therapist or UHS primary care physician/nurse practitioner. Students who choose not to follow the UHS psychiatrist’s recommendations will be referred to other sources of care. UCC case management services are available to help with referral to the appropriate provider.
