Adobe has made its Creative Suite product free through the end of May for all students, faculty, and staff. 

  • Anyone who needs access to it should submit a web ticket with the request from help.georgetown.edu

Counseling and Psychiatric Service (CAPS) has moved Online

The Student Health Center and Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS) no longer offer physical access but continue to offer virtual services to students. These virtual appointments allow you to check in with a clinician using secure video platforms. The consultations will offer you the ability to ask questions, get connected to needed resources, provide guidance about next steps during these difficult times, and thus begin the helping process.

All information shared with CAPS is confidential.

  • In addition to individual counseling, CAPS offers Group Therapy sessions.
  • CAPS is waiving all fee-for-service charges during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • For mental health emergencies after hours, please dial 833-960-3006. You will be connected through a page operating system to a trained behavioral specialist who will provide problem-solving support to help you manage your emergency.
