Cooper Union Counseling Services

Please note that we do not provide counseling services over the summer.

Students should consult with their health insurance company to find a provider in their local area. Cooper Union’s counseling program will begin again in September, when fall classes resume. Resources for connecting to a provider can be found here.

Also, we want to remind everyone of the resources that are available, 24/7, for you or for anyone you may be concerned about. Additional resources for care, including those available 24/7, can be found here.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
