Counseling Center Services
​​​​​​​​The Counseling Center is a catalyst for mental and psychological well-being within the university campus and is dedicated to providing counseling services to registered students at the American University of Beirut. The center strives to create a safe, affirming, and unbiased environment to provide the diverse student body with the needed support. ​

Students may seek counseling for any difficulty they may be facing, no problem is too minor or too major for counseling. We provide short-term counseling and crisis intervention to help them gain increased awareness, independence, and effective daily habits. The most common problems that students seek help for are:​

  • Depression and constant sadness
  • Anxiety and panic attacks
  • Physical or sexual abuse
  • Substance abuse
  • Academic difficulties, mainly lack of focus and concentration
  • Accumulated personal issues that range from intimate relationships, family problems, to identity-related difficulties​​​

​The Counseling Center offers its service on a first-come/first-serve basis. Counseling may be received on a walk-in basis, but you may have to wait to be served, so scheduling an appointment is highly recommended.

Students can book an appointment through the online application.

Office Hours:

  • Monday to Friday 8:00 – 17:00
  • Monday to Friday 7:30 – 15:00 (Summer Schedule)


If you are unable to keep an appointment, we ask you to provide us with a 24-hour notice in order to reschedule. If we do not hear from you, your appointment will be given to another student.​​
