Appointments

Account Activation

Students who wish to have their AWHC account activated or reactivated can send their request to asupp@uOttawa.ca. We will tell you about our policies and explain to you how to use our online appointment booking system to ensure that you have all the information you need to access our services. You will then be able to book an appointment with one of our writing advisors by logging into your account.

Students who already have an active AWHC account can book an appointment directly by logging into their account. If you have any questions, or if you are unable to login to your account, please contact our team at asupp@uOttawa.ca.

Appointment Booking

You can book up to four appointments of 45 minutes per week (limit of one appointment per day). The AWHC reserves the right to limit the number of appointments in the event of high demand. Don't miss out; book your appointment in advance.

  • Microsoft Teams is the only platform used for remote appointments. To download Microsoft Teams, visit the Information Technology webpage.
  • Be ready to share your course outline, the assignment instructions, and a copy of your work with your writing advisor.

Peer Help

We do not correct or edit any work and we do not look at take-home exams. We use student-centred teaching practices to give you constructive feedback on academic papers. Our writing advisers can address one or more of the following topics: plagiarism and referencing, the structure of a paper and grammar.
