Writing and Communication Centre (WCC)

The Writing and Communication Centre works with students in all faculties to help you consider your audience, clarify your ideas, develop your voice, and write in the style appropriate to your discipline. WCC staff offer one-on-one support for writing papers, delivering presentations, citing research, and revising for clarity and coherence. Group appointments for team-based projects, presentations, and papers are also available.

You can pre-book appointments with WCC staff, or drop in at the Library for quick questions and feedback from WCC peer tutors. To book an appointment and to see drop-in hours, visit www.uwaterloo.ca/wcc.

Please note that communication specialists guide you to see your work as readers would. They can teach you revising skills and strategies, but will not change or correct your work for you. Please bring hard copies of your assignment instructions and any notes or drafts to your appointment.

[optional] For distance learners, co-op students, and students at Stratford, Pharmacy, and Architecture campuses

We provide a limited number of in-person appointments at the Pharmacy and Architecture campuses. Visit the WCC website for instructions on how to book one. Additionally, online appointments (using video and audio) are available to students who are cannot, for whatever reason, attend an in-person appointment on main campus. Simply request an online appointment when you book.
