The John C. Pace library does not have a writing lab, but UWF does have the Writing Center, Building 51, housing the Writing Lab, Language Lab, and other areas that offer services to UWF students, faculty, administrators, and staff. Any university student, whether or not enrolled in a composition course, may use the Writing Lab for help with writing problems. The Writing Lab offers paper reading/critiquing and tutoring in grammar and usage, mechanics, and sentence structure.

There is a satellite writing lab for the College of Education and Professional Studies located in the Professional Studies Library. See the PSL website for current hours.

The Write Schedule

The Writing Skills Lab is available for students' use approximately forty (40) hours a week. It is open five days a week, with some additional evening hours and Saturdays when staffing is available. Specific schedules are announced each term and posted at the Writing Lab.
