Key Campus Resources

Counseling Center

The Counseling Center provides confidential short term counseling and crisis mental health services to any undergraduate student. For students needing care beyond the scope of the clinical services available on campus, [for example: weekly CBT or psychotherapy, psychiatric medication such as for treatment of ADHD, social skills groups, or specialized substance abuse treatment], we can assist students in referrals to services in the community using their health insurance. We recommend that students who have specialized or intensive mental health care prior coming to Lasell make plans with their current treatment provider to coordinate ongoing support. It is best to find off-campus professionals in the Boston area before arriving at Lasell. If you have questions about appropriate support in transitioning to Lasell as a new student please contact the Counseling Center Director

Dining Services

Dining Services at Lasell College is committed to providing community members quality food that is not only healthy and nutritious but is also sourced and prepared with sustainability and wellness in mind.  As part of that commitment, we make every effort to support our students who may have special dietary needs or specific food allergies

In order to establish eligibility and best serve the needs of students with dietary accommodation needs, students must submit supporting medical documentation to Scott Lamphere, Director of Disabilities Services and Coordinator of Student Conduct at, 617-243-2115. 

Upon verifying the accommodation need, the student then can schedule a consultation meeting with the Director of Dining Services, the Executive Chef, and/or the Staff Nutritionist to establish a dining plan that addresses their specific dietary needs. 

Managing dining needs is an ongoing process and requires regular communication between the student and Dining Services.  The Director of Disability Services will continue to seek regular feedback each semester to ensure the best dining experience possible.

Health Services

The Health Services Office can provide assistance to students who have medical needs related to a special physical or mental health concern that requires on-going treatment. It is important to note that the Health Services Office does not generally provide student prescriptions to obtain psychotropic medications, including medications for ADD/ADHD; such needs require pre-planning which should be accomplished before the student arrives on campus. For further information, please contact Richard Arnold, Director of Health Services at 617-243-2217 or
