Writing & Study Skills Program

We provide individual appointments, drop-in consultations, and workshops for all full- and part-time UNB students. Our specialty is academic writing, but we also work with students to develop other abilities such as time management, note-taking, examination preparation, and presentation skills. 

Booked Appointments

To book an appointment, please call 453-4527 or 452-6051 (Writing Centre) or email the Writing Centre. You can also use the online Student Services booking form. Check our online calendar for available appointments (marked "open"). You will find us in room 410 of the Harriet Irving Library (next to the elevator), and we offer booked appointments all year. Please bring a printed copy of any work you wish to discuss; a copy of the assignment description can also be helpful. To cancel an appointment, call 453-4527 or email us
