As part of the Library Learning Commons, those who visit the Writing Center must adhere to both UMass' Covid-19 protocols such as the mask mandate and the library's policies and procedures. This means that we require all students to wear a facemask that covers both their nose and mouth. Also, eating is not allowed in the Writing Center.

Additionally, the Writing Center has adopted a policy of going paperless. For more information, please see our Preparing for Your Session page.

Even though we are booking in-person sessions this semester, the Writing Center’s space is limited. Your session may have to be moved online due to space constraints and scheduling conflicts. Please check your schedule before your session to make sure you know how you will be meeting.

If you have been exposed to Covid-19 or are feeling sick:

Book a remote appointment or change your in-person appointment to an online format. You can edit your appointment by visiting our schedule, clicking your scheduled appointment, pressing ‘edit’ at the bottom of your appointment, and switching to an online format. If you are having trouble editing your appointment, please feel free to contact us for assistance.
