Welcome to the Writing & Reading Center

The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Writing and Reading Center is part of the Academic Resource Center (ARC), a federal TRIO student support service in operation since 1976. Whether students need writing help, tutoring for courses in humanities or social sciences, skill-building, or support for physical or learning disabilities, the WRC staff is ready to help.

We provide free, one-on-one appointments for members of the UMass Dartmouth community. We offer tutoring in our main location, Liberal Arts 010, as well as in Elmwood Hall on select evenings. For additional information, please visit our Hours and Locations page.
