Beginning fall 2017, the Writing Center is becoming part of the Learning Commons in the Auditorium Library. The Learning Commons brings together tutoring and academic support in writing, math, and various other subjects. The Writing Center is open Monday-Thursday 9am-6pm and Friday 9am-4pm. Appointments are strongly encouraged; walk-ins also welcome. Request a writing appointment using the Navigate app (choose "book a tutoring appointment"). For more information, call (312) 341-3732, or email us at


The Writing Center strives to build a writing community that empowers students with tools to become stronger, more confident writers. At the Writing Center, we believe that writing well is about more than mastering a set of rules; learning to write is a lifelong process, and all writers benefit from sharing their works-in-progress with interested, engaged, and knowledgeable readers. Our peer tutoring program provides students with feedback and individualized revision strategies for improving their writing – at any stage in the writing process.
