Are You a Graduate Student?

We're not just for undergraduates!

The Writing Center Director is here to work with you on a range of writing, including seminar papers, masters theses and essays of distinction, fellowship applications, prospectuses and dissertation chapters.

You can email the Director at to set up an appointment.


Because of the complexity of graduate-level writing, we ask that you send an electronic copy of the writing you want to go over 24 hours before your appointment. It's easier for our tutors if you bring in a hard copy of your writing on the day of your appointment, too.

Additional information about scheduling and cancellations can be found here.

Additional Resources

In addition to the Writing Center, there are many other centers on campus that can help you with the research process. 

You can visit subject area librarians to get you started on research. 

If you're doing quantitative research, there are centers on campus that can help.  Specifically, the Center for Social Science Computation and Research (CSSCR) can provide you with free consulting services to help with computing and basic statistical questions.  The Center for Statistics and Social Science (CSS)has free consulting services to help members of the UW community create plans for statistical analysis.

Is it after 4:30 or the weekend? Both the CLUE and Odegaard writing centers are open after business hours.
