Meet Us in the Library

You can also meet with Writing Center consultants at the Newman Library Reference Desk. We hope you’ll join us for another way and place to work on your writing.

The Writing Center’s Newman Library Reference location offers 50-minute appointments as well as 20-minute walk-in consultations. Our reference desk location is open Monday through Thursday, 1-6. See below for additional information.

The Newman Library Reference Desk is located on the 2nd floor of the Newman Library Building, under the glass canopy to the right as you pass through the turnstiles.

Students are welcome to schedule the same 50-minute appointments found at the main Writing Center at the Newman Library Reference Desk. Writing Center appointments at the library can be especially helpful for students working on writing assignments that require research, due to the proximity of reference librarians who can support you in making use of the library’s resources.

How do I make an appointment?
To schedule an appointment at the Newman Library Reference Desk, sign in to our scheduler and select “Spring 2015: Newman Library Reference Desk” from the pull-down menu at the top of the page. You can schedule an appointment any time you see a white box.

Walk-in Consultations
The Writing Center’s library location offers 20-minute writing consultations with no appointment necessary. These focused sessions are an excellent opportunity to address your contained writing questions with one of our professional writing consultants.

Walk-in consultations are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note: Walk-in consultations count towards the limits of one consultation per day and two consultations per week. (Workshops are not subject to this limitation.)

Walk-ins will be held Monday through Thursday from 12-5, with the last walk-in session beginning no later than 40 minutes past the hour (e.g. 10:40AM). Please sign up using the waitlist binder at the Reference Desk.

* Please note: These hours are general guidelines and availability is subject to change. Please contact the Writing Center or a consultant at the Reference Desk to confirm availability.
