Real-Time Writing Assistance

Hang out with us in the Writing Lab for on-demand advice.

How does this service work?

Why wait till your paper is complete to get feedback? Come to the Main Writing Lab in BLDG 51, RM 164, Monday through Wednesday between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. You don't need an appointment, nor do you have to come in at the top of the hour. You may stay for a few minutes, or you may stay till the Writing Lab closes at 5:00 p.m.; no one will bother you as long as you are working on a paper. Space is limited to 14 students (12 with their own laptops and 2 on our desktops). 

When you have a question or want some feedback, just ask a tutor. Writing Lab assistants will be on hand to answer your questions regarding mechanics, citation, and formatting.  

What should I bring with me?

Bring your laptop. The Writing Lab has two desktop computers available for students' use, but they are assigned on a first-come-first-served basis. If you don't have a laptop but you want to ensure you get a spot in the tutoring room, check out a laptop from Pace Library, located just across the street from the Main Writing Lab. 

Bring a USB drive, or know how to access your cloud storage. You will not be able to save your work on the Writing Lab's computers or on laptops borrowed from the library. 

Bring your sources, textbooks, and assignments. Printing is not available in the Writing Lab, so you will need to have your hard copies on hand before you arrive.
