If by console you mean Gnome Terminal, then you can change the size in the View menu or with the keys CTRL + and CTRL -. If you mean your ssh console when accessing the server remotely, then it depends on the software you're using. Check its documentation. Either way, this is something rather trivial that don't belong in this forum.
