Thank you for your interest in the Writing Center!

 

 

Our main center is located in Central Desert Complex - Building 3.

Some semesters, we also help students on the second floor of Lied Library. This service will not be available during Spring 2014.

Check below for our hours of operation.

What does the Writing Center do?

Although we do not proofread or edit papers, we offer free help to currently enrolled UNLV students and to UNLV staff with any writing project, from papers to creative writing to resumes, and at any stage of the writing process. We can help you brainstorm, make an outline, work on your drafts, or just be a soundboard for your ideas. We can assist you in person, or you can send us your paper using the form on our Online Writing Lab (OWL) page, or via Skype through our OWL.

We also have a computer lab with 13 computers for student use. Our lab is open every day except Saturday during the fall and spring semesters, and Monday through Friday during summer sessions II and III. Come in to work on your drafts, do research, or work with a consultant.

During a consultation, you have 45 minutes of undivided attention from one of our consultants. While you read your writing out loud, we listen or look for gaps in ideas, problems in organization, grammatical errors, and style. Together we can then address the questions and needs you have during your consultation. There's more to writing well than just grammar, and so we look at the whole paper.

We may not get to everything in a paper during one 45-minute session, but any time spent on improving writing skills can only make students better writers.

To make an appointment, please call us at 895-3908 or drop by the Writing Center (CDC Building 3).
Walk-ins are sometimes available, but we recommend making an appointment well ahead of the date your assignment is due.
