The Writing Center offers assistance to students writing papers and reports as well as to those making applications to graduate and professional schools and preparing résumés. Beginning about the third week of each semester, the Writing Center is open on a regular basis and staffed with student tutors. Students may make an appointment using the center’s online calendar. The Writing Center also offers typing instruction and special tutoring for international students. The center is located in the Boatwright Library’s Administrative Wing, under the bell tower to the right of the library’s main entrance. Many of the center’s materials and other information can be found at writing.richmond.edu.
