Finding the Counseling Psychology Training Clinic

It is easiest to find the clinic if you enter the building through the door on the Mills Street side (close to the corner of Johnson Street), and take an immediate left when you walk into the building. You'll see a nondescript stairway door on your left. Go up one flight, pass Educational/School Psychology on your left when you exit the stairway, continue into the hallway ahead of you (don't turn left) and you will see the CPTC in room 312 on the left. Even though the room is #312, it's on the second floor when you enter on the Mills Street side. (Directions to the elevator can be provided when scheduling an appointment.)


There is no designated parking for the CPTC, but there are meters available. In addition, there is a parking lot (Lot 56) behind the Zoology Research Building at 1117 West Johnson Street on the corner of North Charter Street (one block West of Mills Street) that is free after 4:30 p.m.


Most buses that go to downtown Madison and the UW Campus will stop near the Educational Sciences Building. The best stop is Johnson Street at Mills Street (coming from the West) or University Avenue at Mills Street (coming from the East - then walk one block on Mills Street towards Johnson Street).
