Student Resources and Reporting Options Brochure


Confidential Support Team (CST)

The Confidential Support Team (CST) offers confidential support to Stanford students impacted by sexual assault and relationship violence, including domestic abuse, intimate partner abuse, stalking and sexual or gender-based harassment. CST services include information and help accessing resources, short-term emotional support and ongoing individual counseling. There is no charge for Stanford students. For more information about CST’s 24/7 hotline, hours and support services, please visit the CST web page.

CST is not currently web booking appointments. Students can call to schedule routine appointments via business line (650) 736-6933 and urgent support via the hotline (650) 725-9955. CST is continuing to offer ongoing therapy via video (Zoom) for students who are still in California (per state & federal licensing laws). For students who are not in California, CST is unfortunately not able to offer therapy due to cross-state license issues. However, no matter where the student is, CST can offer urgent/crisis support by phone and consultation to help students connect with appropriate local care.
