Thank you for your interest in Uncle Joe’s! We are a student-run peer counseling and resource center located in the storefront below Gregg Residence Hall. Uncle Joe’s provides a confidential outlet for students wishing to discuss personal problems. We are open for walk-in visits from 10pm to 1 am every night and are available by phone 24/7.

Our 2017 application season has now closed. Please return to this page in fall of 2018 for information about how to apply.

Training for Uncle Joe’s is held in the spring semester and provides trainees with the necessary skills to be effective resources for the Washington University community. Trainees receive over 100 hours of training, and attendance at all training sessions is mandatory in order to become an active member of Uncle Joe’s. Following training, all members of Uncle Joe’s are required to be active members for two semesters (though not necessarily the two semesters immediately following training or two semesters in a row). As an active member, you will be responsible for sitting duties in our office, holding the beeper for 24-hour periods, attending weekly group meetings, and participating in other Uncle Joe’s events. 

Thanks again for your interest!
