King Library

Our main location on the first floor of King Library, established in 2007, features an open concept with several tables and meeting areas to write and meet with consultants about your writing. When you arrive you’ll see a welcome desk where you check in for your appointment. You’re welcome to use an open table even if you don’t have an appointment, so please make yourself at home.

B.E.S.T. Library

Our B.E.S.T Center satellite location is located on the main floor of Laws Hall in the B.E.S.T. Library. Established in Spring 2013, this satellite was created for the convenience of students with courses near or study schedules in the B.E.S.T Library. When you enter the B.E.S.T. Library, you’ll see the circulation desk immediately on your right. Our consultation area is to the left in the corner area. Just look for the Howe Writing Center sign and check in with the consultant.

Peabody Hall

Our satellite location in Peabody Hall was established in 2008 and is referred to as the Windate Writing Center in honor of a grant from Helen Windate. This center is located on the lower floor of Peabody in Room 18. Just look for the Writing Center sign and check in with the consultant.

Online

The HWC began offering online appointments in Fall 2015 for online students, and we have since opened up this option to all Miami students and alumni. You can meet with a consultant in real-time over video or text-chat in a live online appointment. If you cannot be available during our appointment times, you can also receive written and audio feedback in a written online appointment. All communication and instructions for online appointments take place via email (hwconline@MiamiOH.edu).
