Who We Are:

We’re the university-wide Writing Center. We provide free services for undergraduate and graduate students to support their academic and professional writing at any stage of the writing process. We offer individual writing consultations in person and online where we work collaboratively with writers and provide feedback on any writing, from class essays to cover letters to theses and dissertations to manuscripts for publication and anything in between. We also facilitate writing groups, writing retreats, class visits, workshops, and collaborations with faculty members and departments to support the teaching of writing. 

Our Locations:

We have two locations. The services at these locations are the same and these locations are staffed by the same consultants.  

Main Location:

The Writing Center's main location is Campus Center, first floor, room 1300.

We're located at the end of this room. Once you come into room 1300, keep going until you reach a set of glass doors. Our location is past these glass doors. There are signs located throughout room 1300 to guide you. 

The Writing Center will be closed June 19, July 4-8, and July 12-22.

We also have a satellite location in Wheatley Hall, sixth floor, room 48.

Currently, the satellite location is closed for the summer, but it will be used in the coming fall for our evening hours.
