Writing Help, Research Help, and Learning Strategies

Next to these workstations–in rooms 132, 137, and 139–you can get one-on-one help with assignments.

If you need to cancel an appointment, please do as soon as possible, but at least 24 hours in advance. This will allow other students to get an appointment with an instructor sooner. Repeatedly failing to cancel appointments within the required time or failing to show up for scheduled appointments may result in you being blocked from booking further sessions.

Rooms 201, 202, 205, and 206 are not bookable; they are first-come, first-served.
