If you need support ...

If you’re struggling, or just feel like you could benefit from talking to someone, support is available. Here are some places to start:

  • Call us 24/7 (607-255-5155) to consult with Cornell Health. When we're closed, you can speak with a mental health professional from our on-call service, ProtoCall.
  • Contact Student Support & Advocacy Services in the Dean of Students Office for help navigating difficult life events and crisis situations.
  • Those living in university housing can connect with your residential staff for support.
  • Speak with your academic advisors or professors if you need extra help, or anticipate difficulty meeting deadlines.
  • 24/7 support is also available through these local and national hotlines and text lines, with options especially for students of Color and LGBTQ students.
