Welcome to the Union College Writing Center

In lieu of face-to-face conferences during the Spring 2021 term, we will host online video conferences using Zoom. All appointments will be held at US Eastern Standard Time.  After you make an appointment (learn how here), please follow these steps to connect with your video conference:

  1. A few minutes prior to your appointment, you will receive an email (sent to your Union College email account) inviting you to join a video meeting through Zoom
  2. Simply open the invitation email and the click "join Zoom meeting" link to begin your video conference.
  3. You may have to enable the microphone and/or camera on your computer or mobile device. 

If you have trouble connecting, please email the student you're signed up to meet with in the Writing Center—and we'll try to help resolve the problem.  

We suggest that you attach a draft of the assignment you're working on at least 24 hours before your appointment. You can do this by clicking on your appointment in WCONLINE and using the "file attachment" function at the bottom of the appointment form. Or you can share your draft with your consultant by email or Google Docs. Thank you! 

The Writing Center will open for online appointments on Wednesday, March 21 through Monday, June 7. If you have questions, contact
