CAPS Hours, Appointments, and Location
The CAPS Office at the Law Center is open from 9:00am to 6:00pm on Monday and from 9:00am to 5:00pm Tuesday through Friday. (On Tuesday mornings the office is generally closed 9:00am to 11:30am for our weekly staff meeting.)
After-hours emergency consultations are available by calling 202-444-PAGE (7243) and asking to speak with the CAPS on-call clinician.
The Law Center office is closed during the summer, though services are still available at the Main Campus CAPS office at that time.
Law students have two options for arranging first appointments:
- Complete the First Appointment Request Form on the CAPS Law Center web site. Your request will be sent to CAPS and a CAPS clinician will call you within two business days to briefly gather information, answer questions about CAPS services, and schedule an appointment. When the CAPS office at the Law Center is closed for the summer recess (June-mid August) this form will not be monitored. Please call the CAPS Main Campus office (described below) to schedule an appointment.
- Call the CAPS Main Campus phone number 202-687-6985 during business hours (9:00am to 5:00pm) and ask to speak with the Intake Coordinator, who will briefly gather information, answer questions about CAPS services, and schedule an appointment. If you call after-hours, or if the Intake Coordinator is on another call, please leave a message and they will get back to you during business hours.
Fees: Initial consultations, brief counseling services, and psychiatric services are provided to Georgetown Law students at no charge.
Confidentiality: All information shared with CAPS is strictly confidential. No one, including family, friends, and/or faculty/staff, has access to your information without your written consent. The exceptions to this confidentiality include information about child abuse, serious risk to human life, and court orders.
The CAPS office at the Law Center is located in the Gewirz Student Center, Room 110. If you are arriving for a first appointment, please have a seat in the waiting area and a CAPS clinician will be with you shortly.
