UChicago HELP is a collaborative program within Campus and Student Life made up of a robust set of systems and practices, including some resources that are available 24/7, that support and care for our students. UChicago HELP assists students in navigating academic and personal difficulties, while also ensuring that University community members (such as faculty, staff, and students) can connect students needing help with assistance in a timely manner.

Concerned about the Well-Being of a Student?
If you are concerned about the physical or mental well-being of a student or, a student’s behavior is causing you to worry about any future actions, please report your concern online or utilize the UChicago Safe App to directly text the Dean-on-Call. Once you are in the UChicago Safe App, press the UChicago HELP button. The Dean-on-Call can also be reached through the University of Chicago Police Department at 773-702-8181. Ask that they page the Dean-on-Call and be prepared to leave a 10-digit call-back number. A Dean-on-Call is available 24/7.
By submitting the report, you can share your concerns about a student’s behavior, health, or well-being. The information you provide will help the University assist the student of concern with early intervention resources and strategies. The report will be reviewed and responded to within 24 hours of receipt or by the next business day.
