Campus Resources


As a student at CUA, you have access to many campus resources that may be of help to you.

Career Services

202 Pryzbyla Center



The Career Services Office strives to assist students and alumni/ae in all aspects of career planning, career development and job placement.

Center for Academic Success

204 Pryzbyla Center



Jointly sponsored by Academic Affairs and Student Life, the Center for Academic Success seeks to address the academic and personal needs of students of all abilities and from across the university in an integrated manner that is both supportive and challenging.  The mission of the Center will be to provide mentoring, centralized support services, and focused engagement opportunities to assist students as they journey to become increasingly connected, self-motivated, and independent learners.  A special priority of the Center, which initially will target students who have not yet decided on a major, is to enable students to progress thoughtfully and intentionally from initial registration to the declaration of an academic major.


Counseling Services

127 O’Boyle Hall



Our purpose is to help you to make the most of yourself as a developing person--more comfortable and effective in your own life and in your relations with others. This could mean overcoming unwanted feelings and behaviors or enhancing what you are already doing well. The staff includes clinical psychologists, social workers, and counselors experienced in working with college students. Psychiatric consultation is available when deemed necessary by the counselor. All discussions and records are confidential in accordance with the law. There is no fee for up to 45 sessions of counseling, psychotherapy, or psychiatric consultations for full-time students.

Writing Center

111 O’Boyle Hall



The Writing Center is a free, confidential service administered by the English Department's Rhetoric and Writing Program that provides students with one-on-one consultations for all writing projects during any stage of the process. We provide a professional and supportive environment where CUA students meet and talk with an experienced writer about the rhetorical demands of their writing tasks in order to become better writers with each new project.
