The UC Writing Centre

Appointments in the second term of summer are now available for booking. We will be open between July 13 and August 16. 

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 for those courses. UC students may book up to two regular appointments a year for help on an application letter, admissions statement, or grant proposal. 

You may book two appointments a week in the summer and up to three future appointments at any time. There is no limit on the total appointments you book over the term. 

If you're entering your first year at U of T this file, learn about our our Getting Started Early program from early June to mid-August. We offer one-on-one sessions and group workshops that will help you make the transition to writing in university.
