Research Commons

Our Research Commons location in Allen Library is specifically targeted for writers working on long-term projects. Sessions are exclusively drop-in; they cannot be booked in advance. In consideration of the extended scope of the work, drop-in sessions can last up to an hour and a half.

The Research Commons is staffed by graduate tutors who offer writers support, feedback, thoughtful questions and sincere, peer-to-peer conversation. In case of simultaneous requests for drop-in sessions, graduate students have priority at this site.

During Summer quarter 2017, we have both graduate and undergradute tutors at the main site in Odegaard. We'll pick up Allen Research Commons hours in Fall 2017.
