Many organizations offer 24/7 emergency support for survivors of sexual assault.

Catholic University Counseling Center

Counseling Center emergency support hotline: 202-319-5111

Students can receive emergency support in person by going to the Counseling Center without an appointment Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. On-call counselors provide after-hours emergency support by telephone to students 24/7 during the academic year. Students living on campus can reach the on-call counselor by going to their Community Director. Students living off-campus can reach the on-call counselor by calling DPS at 202-319-5111 and requesting to speak to the on-call counselor for emergency support. DPS will relay the student's contact information to the counselor, who will call back as soon as possible. DPS will not become involved in the situation if the student is only requesting emergency support from a counselor.
