What is Let’s (Tele)Talk?
Let’s Talk is a drop-in service that provides easy access to free, informal confidential one-on-one consultation with a University Counseling Services counselor.
 
What makes Let’s (Tele)Talk different from counseling services at UCS?


No appointment necessary (first-come, first served)
No paperwork to be completed
Easy access support and consultation


 
Let’s (Tele)Talk is especially helpful for students who:


Have a specific concern and would like to consult with someone about it
Would like on-the-spot consultation rather than ongoing counseling
Would like to consult with a UCS staff member about what actual therapy looks like
Would like to meet with one of our UCS identity-based specialists
Have a concern about a friend or family member and would like some ideas about what to do


 
How does Let’s (Tele)Talk work?
While typically offered in various campus locations, Let’s (Tele)Talk will now be offered via Zoom. Click on the relevant link below to access a Zoom meeting with a Let’s (Tele)Talk counselor.

A Campus for All

The LGBT Education and Support Services team works to affirm the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, asexual, aromantic, and allied (LGBTQIA+) students, faculty, and staff by providing educational and supportive resources. Our campus has been recognized as the top college in Oregon for LGBTQ students by the Campus Pride Index.

We are dedicated to providing space for all University of Oregon community members to explore their understanding of sexual/romantic orientation, gender, gender expression, and intersections of identities. We look forward to being in community with you.

Get Educated

LGBTESS offers programs that are designed to educate people about the truth and diversity of the lives of LGBTQIA+ individuals. Through ally training and panel discussions, we provide opportunities to share stories and ask questions in a way that fosters understanding, appreciation, and respect. Presentations are also available upon request.

 


 

Get Involved

Our student-driven outreach teams engage and empower LGBTQIA+ current and prospective students. Whether organizing events, being involved in campus organizations, or taking part in educational panels, our student employees and volunteers connect with the greater campus community, sharing resources to support students’ well-being and academic success.

In addition to our programs and services, there are organizations on and off campus, all focused on promoting awareness, education, support, and appreciation for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and queer issues.

 


 

Get Resources

There's a reason we've been recognized nationally as one of the best colleges for LGBTQIA+ students. From gender equity housing options to inclusive medical and mental health care, the UO is dedicated to creating an environment of respect and encouragement for all of our students.

Support is available through scholarships that are based on both merit and need. Students are also invited to apply for LGBTESS-sponsored trips to conferences.

For students who are currently in or hoping to begin the process of transitioning while attending the UO, the university offers a variety of resources and services.
