  • A comfortable space where writers from all areas of the University community can write, work with tutors and peers, read, and pursue research
  • A focused learning environment for writers to focus on everything from initial brainstorming and drafting to final polishing and document design
  • An opportunity to schedule one-to-one tutoring sessions with tutors and, with advance notice, group sessions
  • In-class presentations about our services, as well as orientation sessions in the Writing Center for faculty and students
  • A range of work spaces for writing, including tables, private rooms with big screens and white boards, and open seating
