Welcome to the University Writing Center!

We are here to help you become a more confident writer by providing individual consultations with expert peer-tutors. We would like to be your writing resource from your freshmen classes through graduate school. We work on papers from all disciplines, not just writing classes. Best of all, the writing center is a free service to students and faculty of the University of Utah. We want to help you develop strategies to make you a better writer and help you see your potential as an academic author. You can also join us on Facebook: University of Utah Writing Center!

New Policy for required visits:

Instructors can now verify whether a student has participated in a consultation with one of our tutors.  Students need only request that their tutors stamp their papers with the official Writing Center stamp, and their instructors can use those stamps as proof that their students worked with our tutors.

For privacy reasons we are unable to divulge the details of the session, but we can verify that a student has had a consultation. Thank you for supporting the Writing Center!
