How To Book An Appointment
Humanities, Social Sciences and Civilizations Core students can book a Writing Tutor appointment in advance. Appointments can be booked up to two days ahead of time, and they become unavailable for booking two hours before the appointment starts.
Appointments are not required; however, during busy times such as mid-terms and finals, we suggest booking an appointment. The Writing Tutors are located on the 3rd Floor of Harper Memorial Library, in the Cathey North Reading Room.
- Visit https://collegescheduling.uchicago.edu
- Select “Schedule a Session with the College Core Writing Tutors”
- Choose a Cubicle, Day, and Time
All Tutors work with papers from all Core courses, but if you prefer to work with a particular Tutor, consult the schedule.
If no appointments are available, you may drop-in on the day you’d like to be seen and put yourself on the waitlist (see How To Drop-In).
When You Arrive: Check-In
Before your appointment starts, you need to check in via the link in your Appointment Reminder email, or via the Check-In Kiosk near Cubicle 18. You'll be asked a few brief questions about who you are and what you're working on. (The check-in window starts 30 minutes before your appointment.)
Once you check-in, have a seat and the Tutor will call your name when they are ready to begin.
If you do not arrive for your appointment within 5 minutes of the start time, your appointment will be cancelled. If your appointment is cancelled, you can put yourself on the waitlist (see How To Drop-In), or book an appointment for following day.
