Writing and Communication Centre home

Welcome to the Writing and Communication Centre.

The University of Waterloo Writing and Communication Centre is a hub of communication and writing practice, support, and research on campus. Communication is part of all academic and professional activities, and we offer a welcoming space to discuss, explore, plan, and implement feedback and strategies.

Whether you’re designing a presentation, building your ePortfolio, writing a report, or presenting at a conference, we work with you at every stage of the communication design process. Our sessions are collaborative and open. As the writer, your voice and ideas come first. Think of us as your partners in communication. We’re here to listen, discuss, and help you develop your academic and professional voice.

We are located next to the Student Success Office on the second floor of South Campus Hall (SCH). Drop by or contact us with any questions.
