Welcome to the University Writing Center!

We are here to help you become a more confident writer by providing individual consultations with peer tutors. We would like to be your writing resource from your freshman 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 at the University of Utah. We want to help you develop strategies to make you a better writer and help you to see your potential as an academic author.

The Marriott Library Writing Center is located on the 2nd floor in room 2701, and in-person tutorials will take place in MLIB 1705A for Fall 2020.

In-person Hours:

Monday-Friday

9:00am-4:00pm

Online Hours:

7 days/week, various hours

Though the Writing Center is closed in between semesters and during university holidays, Fall Break, and Spring Break, students can still get free writing support via eTutoring.


The Graduate Writing Center is located on the first floor of the Marriott Library in room 1180B. Check the online schedule for hours.


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 the receptionist stamp their paper with the official Writing Center stamp.

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!
