Academic Writing Help Centre (AWHC)

As one of the six student services of the Student Academic Success Service (SASS), we are committed to contributing to the academic success of all the students on campus and to enriching the quality of their university experience.

Our goal is to help students develop strategies and skills that will enable them to identify and correct their mistakes. To do so, we offer individual writing appointments, in-class presentations and workshops, and online writing resources.

How to book an appointment?

To book an appointment with our writing advisors, you must register in person at the AWHC.

For the first time at the University of Ottawa, the AWHC (in collaboration with the Student Mentoring Services) offers you the chance to participate in the Long Night Against Procrastination (LNAP), a unique event that is hosted simultaneously in many universities across the country. On the night of November 6 to November 7, come and work on your assignments all night at the AWHC in an effort to overcome procrastination on campus!
