Welcome to the Writing Lab at Purdue

Important note from Writing Lab staff:

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, in-person writing consultations have been suspended for the rest of the Summer 2020 semester. However, our tutors are standing by for remote, virtual consultations.

Use the "Schedule Online" button on this page or click here to schedule a remote appointment. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this chaotic time.

Welcome to the Purdue Writing Lab web page. These pages contain information for Purdue students, faculty and staff using the Writing Lab on the West Lafayette campus. The pages include Writing Lab hours, satellite location hours, and contact information. This area also includes information on lab services, facilities, tutoring jobs, and policies. You will find messages from our directors, information about our coordinators, and information about awards and articles. In addition, we offer a Purdue Writing Lab fact sheet. You may explore this area by using the links located in the navigation bar on the left.

We update the Writing Lab pages often, and we hope you check back to get the information you need. If you have any questions, please contact us using the contact pages listed at the bottom of this page. If you are looking for the OWL writing resources, please go here.
