Writing Center


The William Paterson University Writing Center provides one-on-one tutoring for anyone in the university community working on any kind of writing in any stage of development. Tutorial sessions typically take thirty minutes to an hour.  We work with you on writing issues such as outlining, thesis clarification, organization, style, transitions, citing, and grammar, and we help you learn how to edit and proofread your own writing.  Our aim is not just to produce a better piece of writing; it’s to produce a better writer. 

We have two locations: Atrium 128 on the main campus, and VR 3048 on the Valley Rd. campus. Our phone number is 973-720-2633.
