The Writing Center, part of the Harvard College Writing Program, is a place for Harvard undergraduates to get help with any aspect of their writing, from specific assignments to general writing skills. The Writing Center is staffed by trained undergraduate tutors who provide individual conferences to students working on any writing assignment. You don't have to have a finished paper to come for a conference. You can come with ideas, notes, or a draft. To learn more about what we do, please read our answers to frequently asked questions. 

News and Events

The Writing Center will close at 5 pm on Wednesday, December 13. We will open again at the beginning of spring semester.


Are you writing a paper for STEM course? Wondering about expectations for writing in the sciences? Come visit our science writing tutors every Wednesday evening from 7-9 in the Cabot Library Ice Cube! (That's the glass box near the entrance.)


Fall semester Sunday drop-in hours are  7:30-9:30 pm at the Cabot D-Hall and the Lowell Inn D-Hall. Look for the sign!
