Post-strike announcement: The UC Writing Centre will be open during Study Week 1 and, if there is clear student demand, Study Week 2. Please be sure to place yourself on the waiting list for any days between now and Wednesday April 15 if you can't get an appointment when you need one. We will use waiting lists to determine the size of demand for appointments. If you can't get an appointment now but are on waiting lists, you will receive an email notification as soon as any new appointments are added.
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).
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.
