Temporary hours and services

This week, beginning Wednesday, April 1st, the Writing Center will reopen as an online tutoring center. We’re busy making preparations to transition to online appointments now and will begin scheduling appointments on Wednesday.

In the meantime, a few things to consider:

  • For now, all appointments will be live via Zoom where you can video/audio conference or call in to discuss your writing with a tutor
  • Also for now, our existing schedule will not change, with all appointments occurring between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., Monday – Friday
  • Scheduling via email ( is the most reliable method

Please bear with us as we try to adapt to the present circumstances. In the coming weeks, we’ll be trying to figure out how to expand our services based on feedback we receive in the meantime.



At the New Mexico Highlands University Writing Center, we believe that writing confidence and mastery are fundamental to student success and that every student has something important to communicate. To this end, we provide students with the guidance and resources they need to strengthen their skills and to enjoy the writing process.

We are committed to serving undergraduate students in all disciplines with a holistic, student-centered approach to writing. Students may come to us for support at the beginning, in the middle, or near completion of their writing projects. Through one-to-one conferencing with our trained staff, students become better skilled in interpreting assigned reading and in developing and articulating their own ideas.


The New Mexico Highlands University Writing Center offers writing support to undergraduates and graduates in all disciplines. We assist students at any level of writing and at any stage in the writing process, whether it is with brainstorming, drafting, or rewriting and revising. Our tutors serve as guides, rather than editors, working in collaboration with students to facilitate their growth as independent, writers, speakers, and thinkers. We believe that talking about and practicing writing are the best ways to develop effective writing skills.


Hours for Fall and Spring Semesters
The Writing Center is open Monday through Friday.
