We understand that for many, COVID-19 is still a concern. Since September of 2021, we have implemented a hybrid service model that allows for flexibility in care.
If you are currently away from the local campus area, we suggest that you consider local resources for therapy. In the event of an emergency, please dial 911 immediately.
Students can make appointments:

- Call 609-896-5157 (email/voicemail should never be used in case of an emergency.)
Counseling services are free, confidential, and available to students.
The Counseling Center, housed in Zoerner House, comprises a broad-range of services available to currently enrolled, full-time students and part-time students living on campus, as well as other students at the discretion of the director.

Mission and Philosophy Statement
The Counseling Center at Rider University believes that education includes the development of the total person and not intellect alone. We provide services that are central to the overall mission of the university. These services help students achieve educational and career goals, learn problem solving skills, increase and enhance their capacity to develop satisfying interpersonal relationships and make full use of their potential for continued growth outside of their educational experience.
Thus, the mission of Counseling Center is to provide services of a developmental, remedial, and preventive nature. These services focus on enhancing skills that students already possess while encouraging the development of new ones that will help students achieve success at Rider University and beyond.
We strive to offer these services in an atmosphere that is welcoming and comfortable for all students, regardless of race, gender, ethnic background, age, sexual orientation, citizenship, or physical status.
