About the Writing Center

Writing Center








The Writing Center at the University of Notre Dame is dedicated to helping students become better writers. Our tutors accomplish this goal by listening attentively in writing conferences, reading papers carefully, and asking questions that can help writers better express their ideas and construct their arguments.

Writing Center tutors work with writers during all stages of the writing process—from understanding an assignment, to developing a thesis, to organizing the paper, to revising the final product.

Make an appointment on our online scheduler. Please note that we often have high demand, so it will be in your best interest to schedule early. You can access the wait list by clicking on the clock to the left of the date on the online scheduler. 

Writing Center instruction conforms to the University of Notre Dame honor code. Tutors do not write or edit papers for students. Instead, we help students acquire writing and editing strategies to achieve their own goals as writers.
