Aiding Students &
House Staff in Distress

Students experiencing a psychiatric emergency should call 911, TJU Department of Security (On Campus: 811 or Off Campus: 215-955-8888), or go directly to the nearest emergency room.  Students on campus should go to the Thomas Jefferson University Hospital Emergency Room, located in the Main Hospital Building at 10th and Sansom Streets.

Jefferson faculty and staff who have an urgent concern about a student or House Staff officer may contact the SPCC Director directly by calling 215-503-2817 and then dialing ‘1’ and then ‘0.’  Jefferson faculty and staff with non-urgent concerns about a student or House Staff officer should call 215-503-2817 and leave a confidential voicemail with their name, contact information, and best times to call back.  A SPCC counselor will contact you as soon as possible.
