The records of North Carolina State University's Counseling Center contain correspondence, notices, brochures and reports documenting the activities of the center. The center produced yearly Advisers Handbooks as a resource for faculty serving as academic or vocational advisers to students. Some handbooks have been annotated by Counseling Center staff including William Weston and Murray Downs. Notices and brochures contained in these records pertain to student services offered by the center. The Counseling Center's offices were originally located in Holladay Hall until 1964 when they were moved to 207 Peele Hall. The Center moved in 1976 to a location at 200 Harris Hall. Materials in this collection range in date from 1935 until 1996.

The North Carolina State College (later University) Counseling Center was originally located in Holladay Hall and was alternately called the Department of Counseling. Through the early days of the center's existence, the counseling center offered services for pre-college and enrolled students including entrance testing guidance, orientation events, financial aid assistance, vocational and educational guidance, social and personal guidance and special assistance for disabled, academically challenged and gifted students. In the early 1950s, the center promoted the idea of having health professionals on staff at the College. By the 1970s, a Health Center was established as a separate entity from the Counseling Center. As of 2013, the Counseling Center operates as an arm of the Student Health Center and focuses on personal, academic and vocational guidance for students.
