Tuttleman Counseling Services (TCS) is committed to Temple University’s efforts to protect the health of students during the emergence of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).  As you may know, Temple has transitoned to online and alternative forms of learning, and students who live in Temple housing have been asked to vacate by Saturday, March 21.  Know that if this is not feasible for you, you may request an extension through University Housing and Residential Life.  The university is also advising that students living off-campus return home through the end of the semester.

TCS is currently closed for face-to-face meetings as a safety measure to help stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus.   We will continue offering counseling services remotely at this time (though we do not have Saturday or evening hours for remainder of spring term).  If you are leaving campus and relocating somewhere in the state of Pennsylvania, we will offer remote counseling. Unfortunately, if you are relocating out of state, we cannot offer counseling services for the duration of the semester.  Despite this, if you are interested in continuing counseling, our office can work with you to refer you to a provider in your area. 

If you are a returning student and interested in speaking to a counselor please call 215-204-7276 or email and leave your name, phone number, email address and a message.

If this is an emergency please go to your nearest psychiatric emergency center ot call 911 for assistance, or 215-204-1234 to reach Temple police if you live close to main campus.

We recognize that the Coronavirus outbreak and the ensuing emotional, social, financial and public health impacts may be stressful and confusing.  In the midst of these rapidly evolving changes, we encourage you to utilize your social supports, engage your coping strategies and continue healthy and hygienic practices. 

If you feel ill with a fever, cough and/or shortness of breath call your medical provider or Student Health Services for further guidance.
