Writing Center

Where to find us.

We are located at 1000 Floyd Avenue, on the 4th floor of the Academic Learning Commons.

Readers for all writers.

Why? Because your professor shouldn’t be the first person to read your paper. At the Writing Center, our consultants offer you an additional set of eyes, an additional perspective on your work, before anyone stamps a grade on it. We are here to be your readers and listeners, regardless of what discipline you’re in or what project you’re working on.

We’re trained to help you sort out what you want to say, and how you want to say it, so that it makes sense to your readers and clearly expresses your ideas. Stop by for a one-on-one consultation to see what a conversation with one of us can do for you.

Choose Your Consultation Style!

In person

Of course. To schedule a one-on-one, on-site appointment, click on the Schedule an Appointment link, call (804) 828-4851, or stop by our reception desk. We do take walk-ins as we can, but appointments are preferred–it’s the only way to guarantee you will be seen at the time you choose.


Absolutely. We do need at least an hour’s advanced notice for online appointments. Information for scheduling an online session is available here: Online Consultations. You can also read more about our online service and how it works. You schedule an online appointment as you would an in-person consultation–just make sure to specify that you want an online appointment.
