Undergraduate Student Writing Center

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

The College Library has launched a collaborative partnership with UCLA’s Undergraduate Student Writing Center to host a new location for the center starting in the winter quarter. This location, which is the center’s third site, makes peer-to-peer writing consultation services more accessible to students while also introducing them to library collections, services, and staff expertise for assistance with research projects.

Housed in room 228, located in the west hallway on the second floor, the center is open Sunday through Thursday evenings from 6 to 9 p.m. Six undergraduate students trained as peer learning facilitators provide one-on-one writing consultations and are also being trained to help direct students to relevant library collections and services. Appointments are available in advance and on a walk-in basis. This service is supported by the UCLA Library’s Rose Gilbert Fund.
