Due to the precautionary measures taken by UCL in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, our service is unable to offer in-person appointments until further notice. Appointments are currently being undertaken online and via phone.


SPCS does not provide crisis support.

In an emergency (for example, if you are in immediate danger of harming yourself or others), always phone 999 (or your local equivalent if you are overseas) or make your way to the Accident and Emergency Department (A&E) at your local hospital. The closest A&E to the main UCL campus is at University College Hospital located on Euston Road between Warren Street and Euston Square stations.
