Writing Center Maintenance May 26–28

Due to construction in the Writing Center, we will hold drop-in hours only from May 26–28 from 2 p.m.–5 p.m. in the area beside the reference desk on the 2nd floor of Newman Library.

The Virginia Tech Writing Center is a free service for all Virginia Tech students, faculty, and staff, at all levels. We also are happy to assist Language and Culture Institute students, VT alumni, and area high school students. We're located in Newman Library's second floor Learning Commons, just past the elevators.

We work with writing and reading assignments from any course in the University. We can also help you with writing projects that are not linked to classes.

While we try to accommodate walk-in sessions when possible, we strongly encourage you to make an appointment.

Call us at (540) 231-5436 to schedule your session!
