Center for International Studies can provide information on study abroad (both short and long term), courses with international components, and service opportunities.

Counseling Center offers many services, such as individual consultations about personal problems, group meetings, and help with substance abuse. Students can call to make appointments, and faculty/staff can call to ask for support with helping students.

Financial Aid Office offers information and answers questions about students' financial aid. Both students and advisors can learn important financial aid information from their series of helpful explanatory videos.

Learning Assistance Resource Center (LARC) provides tutoring in languages, math, and other topics, as well as helping students with study skills and time management. Both advisees and advisors can benefit from the information on their Resources page.

Office of Off-Campus and Commuter Services helps students locate off-campus housing and roommates, provides information on ridesharing, public transportation, and parking, and helps create a positive relationship with the West Chester Borough community.

Office of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Ally Services (LGBTQA) assists students in their gender identities, providing information, events, training, and a safe space. Faculty advisors should participate in Ally training to allow them to be the most effective supporters of their LBGTQA advisees.

Resource Pantry supports students who are experiencing food shortages or need common items like toiletries. They also have a selection of professional and warm attire.

Office of Services for Students with Disabilities (OSSD) offers a range of services for students with physical or learning disabilities, from testing to accommodation.

Sexual Misconduct Resources are available to students who believe they may have been victimized sexually or have been accused of sexual misconduct. Advisors can consult these to inform their advisees of reporting requirements and campus processes for redress. Students should know that all faculty must report to the Office of Social Equity any incidents of sexual misconduct (unless they were noted during a classroom discussion, in a writing assignment for a class, or as part of a University-approved research project). Please see either of these web pages to learn the offices where students can discuss this type of problem confidentially.
