Drop-In Services

Are you a UC Merced student who is ...

  • Thinking about a question or concern that would benefit from a brief consultation with a counselor?
  • Concerned about a friend or family member and would like information or advice?
  • Interested in a counselor’s perspective but hesitant to try out counseling?

If any of the above applies, CAPS has a program just for you! CAPS is offering a drop-in service that gives students a chance to stop by our office for a brief, confidential conversation with a professional counselor to receive consultation, support, advice, and/or referrals.


Drop-in services at CAPS are available on a first-come first serve basis and are available:

Mondays 9am-11am, 1pm-3pm

Tuesdays 8am-11am, 1pm-3pm

Wednesdays 9am-11am, 1pm-3pm

Thursdays 8am-11am, 1pm-3pm

Fridays 8am-10am, 1pm-3pm


Please call the CAPS main office at (209)228-4266 if you need to talk with someone if you are having a crisis. Drop-in services are not set up to handle crisis situations. Read more about our crisis services for information.
