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).

You can now register for either our two workshops on real-world writing genres: Writing and the Law with U of T Law professor Lisa Austin, and Writing and Print Journalism with  journalist, editor, and writer Rachel Giese.

You can now register for the  Step Forward event How Can I Become a Stronger Writer? A panel of UC Writing Centre instructors will provide advice based on their experience as writers, editors, and teachers of writing. Then they will address your questions on the writing process. Register online.

UC students seeking admission to a professional or graduate school may seek help on admissions letters. Learn more about our one-on-one policies.

Note:  As fall and spring terms progress, appointments can be hard to get. Try to book well in advance, but if an appointment is not available, place yourself on the waiting list for as many days as you like. You will receive an email notification when an appointment becomes free. Appointments often become available on the day of the appointment; checking the schedule in the morning is a very good strategy for getting an appointment. If nothing is available that day, then you can try to see an instructor on a drop-in basis.
