The Graduate Writing Center's online scheduling system will be back online during the first week of spring classes for appointments beginning January 22nd.

Writing Center Hours: The Graduate Writing Center is generally open from the second week of each semester through finals week, Monday through Thursday 10-6 and Friday 10-3.

If you would like an early evening appointment (at least 48 hours notice needed!), please email and let us know the day(s) and time(s) that would work for you. (Don't forget to check back for our reply!)

Writing Center Locations: While our new Bailey Howe space is being created (grand opening expected Spring 2018!), we offer appointments in Waterman 113R and the Bailey-Howe Graduate Writing Center cubicles on the library's ground floor. Have a preference for whether you meet a consultant in Waterman or in Bailey Howe? When you use our on-line scheduling system, you can click on an open appointment and see the location!

The Graduate Writing Center is happy to announce that you can now schedule online!

To register and/or make an appointment, go to

No Appointments Available? If you'd like to meet with a consultant and the schedule looks full, check again later. You can also stop by the Graduate Writing Center cubicles on the ground floor of Bailey Howe (adjacent to the former Media Center desk). Any time that sign is green, the consultant is available for a walk-in appointment!

Please note that the Undergraduate Writing Center has a similar scheduling system with a similar web address. If you see the Graduate Writing Center logo at the top of the screen, you know you are in the right place!

Meet the Consultants

The Graduate Writing Center is staffed by nine peer, graduate student writing consultants from a variety of disciplines. You can meet them here.

What to Expect When You Meet with a Graduate Writing Consultant

You will meet with your consultant for up to one hour. If you have a draft, bring it with you - but since it may not be possible for you and the consultant to discuss an entire draft in one hour, think too about which sections you'd most like to focus on. (If you are at work on a digital project such as a website or PowerPoint, bring a laptop or notebook, too.) If you don't yet have a draft, bring along any information - an assignment, Call for Papers, initial notes that can help you and your consultant get into a productive discussion to get you started. Most of all, be prepared to be involved. A consultant can't write or correct a paper but can help you take a next step - with a particular project and with perspectives and strategies that can apply to other writing situations too.

If you select Skype for your appointment (recommended only for graduate students who cannot make it to campus), your consultant will email you with further details on how to connect, so watch your UVM inbox for this important message!
