Campus Support & Resources

Here are a few on-campus offices and resource current students can contact for help.

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS): CAPS can help you manage emotional and psychological stress, anxiety, and depression. Do not hesitate to visit CAPS if you are feeling any of these symptoms, or simply need to speak with someone to feel better and pursue a plan for improved emotional and psychological health. Individual, couple, and group sessions are available, and same-day appointments available upon request for urgent needs if you are feeling very distressed and need to speak with someone. Student Presenting to CAPS with a stated urgent need will be seen the same day as necessary.  Students will be asked to provide information about their situation/presenting concern.  If the nature of the need is urgent, and/or if a student indicates concerns about harm, the student will be seen as soon as possible on the same day. Call to schedule an appointment anytime.

Legal Services for Students: It is free and easy to schedule an appointment with a lawyer who is familiar with the issues faced by undocumented and DACAmented students.  The Legal Services for Students office is located on the second floor in the Law School.  You can call or visit anytime Monday to Friday between 8am-5pm and the receptionist will schedule an appointment.  Your personal information will remain completely confidential. 

Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA): The OMA is the center of the Support Services for Undocumented Students and you are strongly encouraged to visit in-person to get connected to the Jayhawk community of other undocumented students and knowledgeable staff at KU. The Office of Multicultural Affairs provides direction and services for current and prospective students from underrepresented populations. In addition, through collaborative partnerships we offer diversity education programs that foster inclusive learning environments for all students. Our programs and services enhance the retention of successful matriculation of students, while supporting their academic and personal development.

Watkins Health Services:  As a current student at KU, Watkins can help you with most health-related issues and includes a walk-in clinic, pharmacy, immunizations, allergy clinic, the CARE Coordinator and much more.
