Writing Center

Writing Coaching for Residential Students

The residential Writing Center wants to help you build writing skills to serve you in your classes and future careers. Our peer coaches are highly trained to help you wherever you are in the writing process, from brainstorming to preparing your papers for submission. We offer one-on-one appointments to current residential students as well as a Writing Lab, which is a flexible environment where students can get assistance during the drafting process. Online students should contact the Online Writing Center.


Schedule Appointments through LU Network

We use the LU Network scheduling system for appointments, which lets you schedule an appointment for a time and location that works best for you.

So that we can provide you with the best service possible, we ask that you make your appointment at least 12 hours in advance. Students may only make one appointment per day.


Writing Coaching Appointments

Writing Lab

Monday – Thursday 12:00-9:00 p.m.

Friday 12:00-5:00 p.m.

Location: JFL 260

The Writing Lab is an additional form of assistance the Writing Center provides for students seeking a quiet, low-pressure environment to work on their assignments at their own pace. Our lab encourages independent work, with the added convenience of a writing coach close by to answer any questions you may have as they arise. You are not required to reserve a slot to visit the Writing Lab, so you may drop in any time during our open hours. Please bring your own laptop and any relevant assignment materials.


While the Writing Lab is a beneficial service, it is not designed to replace one-on-one appointments or Writing Coaching visits for class credit. If you would like undivided attention to your writing, or if your class is requiring (or offering extra credit for) coming to visit us, please make an appointment through LU Network.
