Office Hours with Professors

If you are having trouble in a course, one of the first steps you should take is to talk to your course professor. Faculty have regular office hours and are often best able to assist you with the specific understanding of the course material.

Counseling and Human Development Office

Sometimes students experiencing academic difficulty are facing stresses in a number of areas in their life. The Counseling & Human Development office provides short-term individual counseling, a variety of support groups, medication evaluation, and crisis services. Counseling & Human Development is located on the second floor of Dick's House.

Student Accessibility Services

Students with learning differences and/or mobility, vision, or hearing-related impairments at Dartmouth have met the same rigorous standards of admission that all other Dartmouth students have met. Once admitted to the College, students with disabilities are entitled to register to receive certain reasonable accommodations from the College in order to participate in all programs, services, and activities. We view our relationship with individual students as a partnership in which we promote pride in the value of one's disability-related experience, self-advocacy, and self-determination.

Student Wellness Center
The Student Wellness Center helps students reach their full potential by fostering holistic wellness. The Student Wellness Center promotes positive change for both individuals and the Dartmouth community by giving students the knowledge and tools to take care of themselves, each other, and the community. This office provides individual consultations, prevention efforts, and educational outreach to the campus community to encourage healthful behaviors and minimize harmful ones. The Student Wellness Center is located on the 3rd floor of Robinson Hall.
