Writing Center Appointments
Appointments last for 45 minutes. You may schedule up to two sessions each week, but they must be on two different days. Students with letters on file with Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) or who are English language learners may sign up for one full hour.
If you have not made an appointment and would like to “drop in,” you’re welcome to do so as long as there are no scheduled appointments and extra staff members are available.
Contact the Writing Center in advance if you have issues related to mobility and need assistance with getting to your appointment.
How to Make an Appointment
You may schedule an appointment online, in person, or by calling the Center at 510.430.3360. Please provide your contact information, including email and phone number, and preferred appointment time(s).
Sign up online! You will receive an email shortly thereafter to confirm your appointment. Note that the appointment is not confirmed until you receive this follow-up email. Please apply for appointments online two days ahead of the requested appointment day. Sunday appointments made online must be applied for no later than the previous Friday at noon.
