Emergency Numbers


For life threatening emergencies, please call 911 for immediate help or go to the nearest hospital emergency room.

Counseling & Human Development (CHD): 

  • Daytime/weekdays: 603-646-9442

  • After hours/weekends: 603-646-3333

CHD offers 24-hour crisis counseling for enrolled students or for those who are concerned about an enrolled student. 

An emergency might involve

  • Thoughts and/or plans to hurt yourself or someone else
  • Engaging in a behavior that is life threatening 
  • If you have been assaulted, physically or sexually

During Regular Business Hours: While most counseling services are scheduled on an appointment basis, there may be crisis situations that require immediate or same-day intervention. CHD is open from 8:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday (summer term/between term hours are 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.). You can call our office at 603-646-9442 or come to CHD on the second floor of Dick's House. Please inform our staff that you have an urgent concern and need to speak with the Counselor on-Call.

After Regular Business Hours: You can access the Counselor on-Call by calling Dick's House Inpatient Department (IPD) at 603-646-9440 (fall/winter/spring terms) or by calling Safety and Security at 603-646-3333 (summer term/between terms).

What to Expect: The on-call counselor will help you determine what care you need and how and where to get it. At times, just talking through a crisis situation with the counselor is all that is needed. The Counselor On-Call will determine with you, if further intervention is appropriate. In some cases, for instance, the counselor on-call will help a distressed student formulate a plan, including resources for support, to get through a night or weekend.    Download document
