How to Make an Appointment

 Our online scheduling system enables students to make appointments from their computer, tablet or smartphone. Our appointment slots are 45 minutes. The appointment allowance is 90 minutes per week, with a maximum of 45 minutes on any given day. You can schedule your consultation up to 7 days in advance. 

Step 1: If you haven't used our service before, register for an account here.

Step 2: Once you have registered, you will receive an email confirmation. Log back in at 

Step 3: Select a schedule - WRITING CENTER (for writing or college reading support) or DIGITAL STUDIO (for digital project support e.g. websites, ePortfolios, videos).

Step 4: Select mode of delivery: face-to-face or online Zoom appointment.

Step 5: White boxes indicate an open time slot. Once you find a time you want, click on the white box.

Step 6: A pop-up window will open. Enter your information as prompted.

Step 7: When you are sure you have filled out the appointment details, click "Save."

Step 8: You will receive an email confirmation indicating your appointment has been made. You can log back into the system at any time to change or cancel your appointment!

Note: Our schedules fill up quickly! Please cancel your in-person or Zoom meeting appointment if you can't attend. This frees up the appointment time for others. There's no penalty for a cancellation, but If you don't cancel and don't turn up, we will mark you as a no-show. Three no-shows and your account will automatically be blocked until you contact the RWC Director (, who will respond when they can.


The Reading-Writing Center provides in-person consultations for both undergraduates and graduates in three locations: the Williams Building (Room 222C), the William Johnston Building (Ground Floor Platform), and the Strozier Library (Basement, Scholars Commons Conference Room 005C). We offer 45-minute, socially distanced appointments. We also provide synchronous, online consultations via Zoom. 

To keep our campus healthy, please note that masks are expected during face-to-face appointments. In addition, we ask that you bring your own laptop or bring 2 paper copies of your project (one for you and one for your consultant). 

Our consultants look forward to talking with you, discussing your work, and answering your questions on any writing from your relationship with language to the use of citations, and everything in between.

Undergraduate Consultations

As undergraduates, you will often first encounter the Reading-Writing Center while taking a first-year composition class. Our consultants, who are all students themselves, are on hand to help and support you through your first experiences of college-level writing. We are happy to talk about every aspect of your engagement with language, writing, and college-level reading.

You don’t have to be struggling to visit us! We can be your sounding board or your first reader; we can help you get started with a project and keep going; we will listen to whatever you have to say about Standard Academic English, writing “rules” and your personal relationship with language, and we will support your decisions about your own voice as a writer. And of course we will also help if you have specific questions – or would like suggestions – about the structure, clarity, and flow of a draft assignment; or about your (or your professor’s) sentence-level concerns around grammar and punctuation. Again, the final decisions will be yours.

Graduate Consultations

We regularly meet with graduate students working on theses and dissertations and other long-form projects such as articles for publication. Ideally, these dialogues become a collaboration that includes input from advisers, so that consideration is given to both form and content as the project develops. We also frequently work with bilingual and multilingual students at the graduate level, addressing the particular challenges of producing a long manuscript in academic English. We are happy to help, not only with the text in hand, but also with strategic approaches to producing your best written work.
