Appointments


To book a 50-minute appointment, call 604 527 5486 (New Westminster campus) or 604 777 6185 (Coquitlam Campus) or email stuserv@douglascollege.ca.

At this time, all appointments can be booked as in-person or Zoom.

If you are in crisis or have an urgent concern, same-day urgent appointments are available most afternoons.

Contact us if you will not be able to make your appointment so we can make that time available to another student.

In order to give all students the best help possible, it’s important to be on time for your scheduled appointment. If you are more than 15 minutes late, your appointment may be given away, and you may need to re-book.

Call reception directly to book or change an appointment. We can not discuss counselling matters by e-mail.

If our office is closed, please contact after hours emergency services for immediate assistance.
