Writing Tutoring Policies

Writing Centre

Tutoring sessions may be booked in advance by stopping by the Department of Rhetoric, Writing and Communications’ Computer Writing Lab, in 3G10, or by calling 786-9129. The lab is open between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday to Friday.

You can also drop in for an unscheduled consulting session, provided there are tutors on staff to help you. We do not guarantee staffing for dropping in--your best bet is to make an appointment.

University of Winnipeg students are permitted to schedule at most two 1-hour sessions per week. Given our large demand for tutoring, we do not allow the booking of back-to-back appointments.

Cancellations and missed appointments are subject to the following rules:

  • Less than 24 hours advance notice of a cancelled appointment merits a warning. (Cancellations can be made by voice mail at 786-9129, 24 hours a day.)
  • Two warnings will result in the removal of booking privileges. Drop-ins may still be permitted.
  • Failure to attend a session, without advanced notice, will result in the immediate cancellation of all other currently scheduled appointments and will result in the removal of booking privileges.

We are an inclusive and diverse space, and our aim is to make the writing centre a safer space for all students. Please read our Statement on Diversity and Inclusion.
