Welcome to the Office of the Dean of Students

The Office of the Dean of Students is committed to helping our students reach their fullest potential both in and out of the classroom.  Our website contains a great deal of information about the services we offer. The Office of the Dean of Students consists of nine specialized areas that include: Center for Advocacy, Response and Education, Counseling and Psychological Services, Fraternity, Sorority and Cooperative Life, Off-Campus Housing, Parent & Family Connections, Student Health Services, Student Legal Services, and Student Rights and Responsibilities. 

Winter Break Mental Health Resources

Purdue University Counseling and Psychological Services will remain open, offering services remotely through December 18th. To connect to services please call CAPS directly at (765) 494-6995. Our brief screenings are available same day or next day to ensure that we connect with you as quickly as we can.

CAPS will be closed from December 18th through January 3rd. Our after-hours mental health crisis services will be available 24 hours a day during the entire winter break. To connect to this service call (765) 494-6995, then press 1.

Given the longer winter break this year, we also wanted to remind you of other resources that may be helpful when not meeting with a CAPS provider. For more information services that will be offered and other resources, please visit the Winter Break Mental Health Resources webpage.
