Welcome to the Writing Centre

For the most current information regarding the CUPE 3903 labour disruption, please visit York’s labour disruption website. Students will be able to find information about the status of their courses on the Course Status website or via eClass.

We understand that you may have questions and concerns about how this evolving situation may impact you as a student. The University’s top priority is to continue supporting you and your learning. For information regarding campus access, resources and more, please consult our FAQs.

Want to enhance your ability to produce effective academic and professional writing? Take advantage of our writing support programming. We are here to support your growth and development as a writer. Come to the Writing Centre to work on your reading, writing and thinking skills.

We are part of the Writing Department in the Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies, which is responsible for instruction and scholarship in writing. The Writing Centre's main office is located at South 311 Ross.

Writing is a crucial part of learning, a fact which is reflected in the heavy emphasis placed on academic writing in most LA&PS courses. Please note we cannot correct or edit your work. Our focus is to help you acquire the tools to be a strong and independent writer. We can also support you in brainstorming ways to improve your writing and help you implement them.

Read our Land Acknowledgment, which recognizes the unique and enduring relationship of Indigenous people and their traditional territory.

At the Writing Centre, we offer individual tutoring for students from all disciplines, as well as specific supports for multilingual and graduate learners, and those with academic accommodations. We further have an ongoing series of writing workshops, a robust drop-in program and website resources for students and faculty alike.
