Writing support is available to all Capilano University students, faculty and staff. Instructors from the English department provide drop-in consultations to help Capilano students write clearly, logically and effectively in their fields of study. We welcome students from any subject area, of any writing ability – beginner to advanced – and at any stage of their writing assignments, from getting started to fine-tuning a final draft.

Resources we offer students:

  • Drop-in centres where you can work on your writing assignments with faculty who are available to answer your questions and offer feedback and instruction.  Since many university writing assignments are based on reading, we also offer assistance with reading those texts.
  • Collections of handouts and exercises on many aspects of writing such as using commas correctly, using MLA or APA styles of documentation, or how to write a psychology paper.
  • Computer lab with 20 computers and a printer.
  • Online ask an instructor service.
  • Extensive collection of dictionaries and reference books on grammar, composition, language, literature, and research.
  • Bookable meeting room for group work.
  • Quiet workspace with natural light and fresh air.
