Writing Lab and Tutoring in DHC 002

The English Department computer lab is conveniently located in Dauphin Humanities Center (DHC) 002. The lab is open to all students and faculty members and is staffed by free writing tutors, who have been trained to assist students in need of help with their writing assignments. Though the tutors do take walk-ins during the hours below, students are encouraged to schedule an appointment to guarantee a session. You can schedule an appointment by putting your name on the sign-up sheet outside DHC 002.

Writing Lab Schedule

Students can also check the schedule posted outside the lab for any changes in hours. The schedule varies during summer months and semester breaks. The writing lab is also often reserved for classes. During these times, the tutor will post a sign on the door that allows students to relocate for tutoring.
