Welcome to the Writing Lab at Purdue


Update on Writing Lab class tours: As part of broader Protect Purdue efforts to dedensify spaces on campus, this fall we will not be offering class tours of the Writing Lab. Instead, we've prepared a virtual presentation that we encourage you to share with your students. For a student perspective on what the Writing Lab offers, please share this short video. For more information about tutoring services, see our Student FAQs page or watch this short FAQ video. For ideas for how to prepare for a tutoring session, see this video: How to be a good tutee.

The Writing Lab has a lot to offer graduate teaching assistants and instructors. Watch this video featuring two experienced writing lab tutors describing how the Writing Lab can help ICaP graduate instructors with the difficult work of teaching. For what the Writing Lab can offer your students, please watch this short video. If you are looking for the Introductory Composition at Purdue (ICaP) website, click here
