        The Writing Center is now operating remotely due to COVID-19. While our physical center is closed, online tutoring and workshops are available by clicking on the appropriate links on this page. We will also host a “online front desk” to answer questions and help students sign up for services.

        In the Fall, the Online Front Desk will be available through Zoom via computer or mobile device from 8:45am-9pm, Monday through Thursday; Friday, from 9am - 5pm; and Sunday, from Noon - 4pm. To chat with one of our front desk staff, simply click on the blue button above. Once you are connected, you will be placed in a virtual waiting room until one of our staff can speak or chat with you. Thank you for your patience.

        If you want to contact us during hours when the virtual front desk is closed, please email us at
