The Research and Writing Center

We Are at the Heart of the English Department

“Students helping students”


What we do

Writing is learnable. Helping you to improve this skill is our goal. To do so, we support you during every step of your research and writing process and aim to make you a more confident writer.


How we do it

We offer 45-minute, one-to-one tutoring appointments (in person or online). During the appointment, you can work with a fellow student on what you’d like: finding sources, correcting grammar, organizing your paper, etc. While we may not give you the answer right away, we will help you find a solution.


Where we do it

We are located in room 407 of the Brechtbau, in the heart of the English Department. This cozy, comfortable room is the space for your private session, where you can work on your writing while eating free candy, using free handouts, and enjoying the complimentary view of the Österberg sheep. We also offer synchronous online tutoring appointments via WCOnline. No matter where you physically are, you and your peer tutor can view your paper and chat about it at the same time.


Why we do it

We believe that by working together, we can improve your writing skills and empower you to make the best of your potential. You as an individual are most important to us. Therefore, we want to grant you your privacy, treat you with tolerance and fairness, and acknowledge your voice as a writer.


We will always strive to be friendly, to be open, and to treat you with respect. What happens in the Research and Writing Center stays in the Research and Writing Center.
