Drop-In Sessions

At the Writing Center, we understand that it's not always possible to schedule a writing consultation in advance, so we offer 20-minute drop-in writing consultations. Students can complete a drop-in session in the Writing Center office or the Purdue Study Area located on the first floor of the Library during the designated hours listed below.

How to Visit Writing Center Drop-Ins

  1. When you're ready to meet, scan the QR code at the front desk in the Writing Center office suite.
  2. If there is a wait, remain close to the Writing Center. Otherwise, have a seat in the front lobby and a consultant will be with you shortly.
  3. If there is a wait, when it's your turn in line, our staff will email you with the N# you provide, so be sure to provide the correct N# when you sign in.
  4. You will have 5 minutes to report for your drop-in session or your spot in line will be forfeited.

Please Note: This session is likely to be more generic in nature and that the writing consultant with whom you meet may or may not be familiar with your topic or disciplinary writing. For this reason, we recommend where possible scheduling a consultation in advance with a consultant in your area of study.
