Odegaard Writing & Research Center

Online appointments available now

The mission of the Odegaard Writing and Research Center is to support the long-term development of writers and researchers across UW—undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and staff—through high-quality, conversation-based peer learning.

In so doing, we aim to support writers and researchers as they situate their work within more visible and useful inquiry processes that can then be extended to other contexts and purposes, both within and beyond the University, in order to facilitate learning throughout their lives.

Please read our policies before making an appointment.

Registration is now open for the 2024 Dissertation Writing Intensive!

Join us June 10-12th for roundtables, workshops, and facilitated writing sessions supporting graduate research and writing. Open to all UW graduate writers.
