The Writer’s Resource Lab is one of the busiest student services on campus. The best way to get an appointment is to schedule it in advance. (We schedule appointments up to two weeks ahead.) However, you may be able to get a same-day drop-in through one of the following three ways: wait in the WRL for a cancellation, call or be at the WRL when we open in the morning, or check the WRL Facebook page.
Wait for a cancellation: Sometimes students cancel or don’t show up for their appointments. If you are in the WRL waiting when this happens, you can take the available appointment. We have places to plug in laptop computers and tables where you can study while you wait.
Call or come by when we open: Every morning, we open a few appointments for various times that day. These are given out on a first-come first-served basis. If you call or come by the WRL when we open, you can request one of these appointments for later that same day.
Check the WRL Facebook page: When students cancel their appointments, we post those openings to Facebook. You can call us to book one of those cancelled appointment times.
Remember: there is no guarantee that you will get a drop-in or same-day appointment, but you increase your chances substantially by following the three suggestions above. Phone: 562-985-4329.
