UC Writing Centre

If you're registered at University College, you have access to free one-on-one appointments at the UC Writing Centre. Our highly trained instructors will consult with you individually on course assignments at any stage of the writing process and in any subject. Other undergraduate students enrolled in University College program courses may bring in work in those courses.

If you have never had a one-on-one appointment at  the UC Writing Centre, please read up on how to use us.


The UC Writing Centre is located in the UC Library (Laidlaw Wing, 2nd floor, northeast corner).

Group sessions on academic skills are offered through Writing Plus during fall and spring terms.

UC and UC program students interested in creative fiction may book an appointment with this year's Barker Fairley Distinguished Visitor, award-winning writer André Alexis.
