Focus Schedule by Location

If you prefer one of the locations listed below over others, you can now filter our schedule by location. Once sign into our online scheduling platform, look for the “focus schedule by location” option. Select a location option and the schedule will display only the location you chose.

Writing Studio appointments are available at several convenient locations across campus listed below. Regardless of location, all appointments are scheduled through our online scheduling platform by following the “Schedule an Appointment” link on the Writing Studio homepage.

  • Our main location for writing consultation appointments is Curb Center building (1801 Edgehill Ave.) , Suite 112.
    • Here you will also find the office’s of the Writing Studio’s professional staff as well as space for writing.
  • Our Commons Center satellite office is in the Commons Center, Room 217.
  • Online: We continue to offer a significant number of synchronous online sessions alongside in-person appointments, and we treat “online” as the location for this appointment modality in terms of ways you can filter the schedule to search for appointment hours during which a writing consultant is available and ready to meet with you online.
  • Campus-Partner Satellite Locations: For a limited number of hours each week, we have also opened a number of satellite locations hosted by various campus partners. These campus-partner satellites include weekly hours at the following locations (days and times change each semester, check our online scheduler for details):

Primary Offices: Curb Center Building (1801 Edgehill Ave.), Suite 112
