UC Writing Centre

The UC Writing Centre will re-open during the second week of summer term. UC and UC program students will be able to book up to one appointment per week at UC or at any of the other dowtown college writing centres offering appointments in the summer. To book, please check back here early in May. 

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 and non-fiction will be able to book an appointment with this year's Barker Fairley Distinguished Visitor, award-winning writer Shyam Selvadurai.

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

Find out about the activities offered through the English Language Learning Program. The Communication Cafe and Reading eWriting begin early in fall term.

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.
