Student Psychological and Counselling Services 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.
