Graduate Student Services

Coming Spring 2019: Grad Writing Fridays!

Every Friday of the spring semester, the UWC will be open from 4–6pm for quiet, distraction-free writing time. Bring any piece of writing at any stage, and come once a month or come every week! The level of commitment is up to you.

Writing Fridays are free and open to all UT graduate students. Light snacks will be provided, and there will be a UWC staff member on site for 15-minute, one-on-one consultations.
