If you need help with your writing but didn’t manage to book an appointment ahead of time, try one of these options. Most days, some appointments do become available at the last minute.
The Daily Call List
Looking for last minute, same-day appointments? Put your name and cellphone number on the Daily Call List and we’ll phone you if an appointment becomes available during the day. The List is open daily, but it can’t be used in advance: it’s always for today only. You should put yourself on the Call List ONLY if you’re going to be on campus and free to come to the Centre if we call you. Once you have entered the online system, use the calendar to find today’s date and you will see the link. Please specify the time period(s) when you’ll be available.
If all appointments are booked on a given date, the reservation system will offer you the option of joining a waiting list. The reservation system emails all students on the waitlist when an appointment becomes available. You will then need to go to the online booking site; appointments are booked on a first-come first-served basis. If you enter the site and find that there are no appointments on the specified date, this means that the appointment has already been booked by another student.
The Writing Room
Our drop-in writers’ space, The Writing Room, is open one to three afternoons a week. Come meet with a writing instructor or just hang out and write.
