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 U Mass Dartmouth community. We offer tutoring in our main location, Liberal Arts 219-21, as well as in Elmwood Hall on select evenings. We also offer online consultations via the platform (use your U Mass username and password to log in and allow 48 hours for response). For additional information, please visit our Hours and Locations page.
